The Church of Satan has denied its affliation with Lucifer, founder of The Assemblies of Light Bearer Greater Church (a.k.a Church of Satan) in Abia State.
In response to the news that Lucifer, Ifekwe Udo, founder of Church of Satan, Ebem Ohafia Town in Abia State has been arrested, The Church of Satan stated: “That’s not the Church of Satan, and he has nothing to do with us or Satanism. The group is called the Assembly of the Light Bringer. Please stop spreading misinformation and leave us out of this.”
Lucifer was arrested by the Abia Police Command for his alleged involvement in the burning of a police station in Ohafia. Following his arrest, youths of the community summoned courage and stormed the church, demolishing the various images located in the compound.
The residents of Ebem, Ohafia town expressed their joy following the demolition of the Church by the angry youths, saying that they were afraid to confront the founder because of his alleged possession of evil powers that could kill anyone who questioned and challenged his activities.
Lucifer was alleged to have converted some of the youths with gifts he got them, including his assisting them with motorcycles (Okada) for commercial business and other forms of empowerment.
Egwu Ibem, a youth leader in Ohafia, stated that “everyone in Ohafia knew” the Abia Church of Satan founder, “Ifekwe Udo did not mean well for Ohafia community with the nature of activities he was involved in.
“He was a bad influence on the community, especially our youths. Some of the youths started joining him because he was empowering them with motorcycles for Okada business.
“There are reports that he used charmed his followers with ‘juju’. He also established a brothel in the community.”
