The Catholic community in Igbo – Ukwu village, Aguata Local Government Area of Anambra State – has been thrown into mourning again after losing another parish priest to the cold hands of death. The deceased identified as Reverend Father Christopher Azolibe, was the Catholic parish priest of Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Church, the foremost Catholic community in Igbo-ukwu town.

Until his death Fr Azolibe also served as the Dean of the Igbo-ukwu Catholic Deanary and also Chairman of ICCPC.


Mixed feelings have continued to rise over the death of the priest as it was revealed that this is the third catholic priest to die this year 2108 after the Christian community in the town carried out a crusade that led to burning of shrines on December 29th, 2017. Their deaths were happened within a space of six months.

According to reports, the traditionalists in Igboukwu threatened a showdown with the Catholic Church earlier this year over the destruction of about 15 shrines and ancient artifacts in the community.

They specifically fingered Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Obimma (Ebube Muonso), the spiritual director of Holy Ghost Adoration Ministry, Uke for orchestrating the destruction during his December 29, 2017 crusade at Central Primary School Field, Igboukwu.


The traditionalists had received information that the priest was coming for community “cleansing” and had written to the Parish Priest of the host church, urging the parishioners to steer clear of their religious sites.

The white man came into AFRICA and denounced EVERYTHING BLACK as EVIL.

The WHITE CHRISTIANS stole our people and took them as SLAVES.

The WHITE CHRISTIANS stole our CULTURAL ART calling it DEVILISH.

But they did NOT destroy the STOLEN ART they put them in museums in the UK for people to PAY and VIEW.

Now we are DESTROYING our CULTURAL HERITAGE worth millions of money because we were told THOUSAND of years ago that they are DEMONIC by the WHITE MAN.  

IGBO UKWU used to be the home of Igbo culture that attracted visitors from far and wide. Now like the rest of Nigeria it is just a name. SAD.

Give Caesar what belong to Caesar and give God what belongs to God.  If people can mind their business, there will be no problem.
