The Akwa Ibom State Government has marked a popular metropolitan church in Uyo, Holy Ghost Ambassadors Ministry International, for demolition.
Nyeneime Andy, the senior pastor of the church, has been very outspoken against the alleged plan by the State Governor, Udom Emmanuel, to foist a successor on the oil-rich state in 2023.
Mr Andy was also invited by Nigeria’s secret police, the SSS, for questioning on Wednesday over his comments on politics in the state, a close associate of the pastor told PREMIUM TIMES.
The church has also been served a notice to that effect.
The Akwa Ibom State Government, through its agent, the Uyo Capital City Development Authority (UCCDA), marked the church building on Wednesday for demolition.
