The Light Bearer Greater Church of Lucifer aka Church of Satan in Ohiafia Abia state has been demolished, and the founder Ifekwe Udo has also been arrested by Abia State Command of the Nigeria Police.

Youths in the area allegedly destroyed the church.

Ohafia Area Council Chairman, Fred Idika told reporters that Udo and his Church of Satan would not be allowed to come back to the area, adding that he (Udo) was a bad influence to the community.

It was gathered that police arrested Udo, also known as Lucifer or Fada-Fada earlier in the week for violating the lockdown protocol directives of both the state and federal governments.

The LGA Chairman Idika said the Commissioner of Police in the state alerted them that Udo violated the COVID-19 protocol directives and that they were coming down to shut the place.

He said the police went there with the Mobile Court to closed down the satanic worship centre.

Udo who also runs a brothel in Ohafia was also accused of terrorising the community, and this led to the youth of the area destroying the satanic images outside his church when he was arrested.

He is said to have become popular a few years back after he established the church and started providing some jobless youths in the community motorcycles on hire-purchase.

A native of the community who gave his name simply as Kalu said people of Ohafia knew his evil practices. Still, nobody could confront him because of his claimed connections with evil forces.

"There is nothing people cannot do now just for money and power," he said. "He claims to have the power Satan has. He is known to use voodoo power on his members and has been getting away with so many things until now."

However, the international church of Satan has reacted to the news. Reacting on its official Twitter page, Church of Satan distanced itself from the church in Ohafia.

'This has nothing to do with Satanism or us. As we've repeatedly warned people, avoid scammers like this and get accurate information directly from our website."
