Anambra State Governor Charles Soludo has condemned a recent prophecy by Reverend Father Emmanuel Obimma popularly known as Ebube Muonso of an impending attack by herdsmen in the state.
In a viral video circulating on social media, the cleric said he saw a prophecy that the tribal-marked herders would invade the Anambra government house and he saw the governor running away in a pool of blood.

Avant-garde reports that Soludo in a letter to the priest said that while he cannot associate himself with issues with the cleric, he also does not believe in political or phantom prophecies designed to play the gallery.
In his letter which was more like advice to the priest, the governor said he welcomes Ebube Muonso’s comments and criticisms as they help public office holders do better.

“On your prophecy, you certainly have the right to pretend that you have ‘seen’ anything, and to call for prayers. I need all the prayers in the world and I believe that thousands of people from good will pray for us and for Anambra.
“I am convinced that the God whom I adore and who sent me on this mission will lead us to complete it to his glory! My life is in His hands and He already knows how many days or years He still has for me.”

Further condemning the priest’s public show, Soludo said such approach of Ebube Muonso is not the best way to communicate as he has the Governor’s number.
“By the way, God has not ‘revealed’ to you the attack I suffered last year by unknown gunmen at a rally, killing three policemen; He also didn’t “tell you” any of the dozens of attacks on innocent people this year so people either exercise caution or pray.
Funny enough, these “pulpit prophecies” are always about high officials. I’ve lived my life up to this age without needing or relying on “prophecies,” and it’s too late now to change.
My prayer is simply, “Thy will be done.” So please if you have any other “revelations” just pray about them or keep them to yourself. I don’t want to know because the God of heaven I serve is totally responsible for my life!

The security situation in Anambra State
Regarding the security situation in Anambra State, Soludo said he expects the cleric to work with his administration to find solutions to the challenge rather than becoming the problem itself.
“I wish God would also ‘reveal’ the identity of the criminals to you so that we get rid of them. I know you are a man of God and I deeply respect all of God’s anointed, but making inflammatory and savage statements about security under the cover of the pulpit should be moderate.
“Security issues should not be part of the drama! We expect you to encourage your supporters to report the criminals and be part of the solution. Or, if you don’t know the full ramifications of the security challenge, call or ask to be told.”
