ENUGU: Government Demolishes Church

According to reports The Master Builder Global Church, Enugu branch worship centre located at No. 19, Park Avenue, GRA, beside the Enugu Golf Club, was demolished by the officials of the Enugu Capital Territory Development Authority on Thursday.

Mr Emmanuel Bamidele, the Administrative pastor of the church described the act as unholy and an attack, he said:

“The owner of the property is overseas. The property was leased to the church for a certain number of years because we did not intend to stay permanently on the property. So, when we started, we applied to the state capital territory development authority to put glass tenet but approval was denied.

“So, we decided to put and  ordinary tenet. However, before the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic in the country, the ECTDA came and sealed the premises. We called the governor who after listening to us said that it would be resolved amicably. We have had a meeting with the Chairman of the ECTDA, Dr Josef Onoh, and we are still discussing.

“Regrettably, on Wednesday at about 10am, I was in the church with our members, suddenly I heard a bang on the gate. I decided to look through the window and saw a bulldozer pulling down the perimeter fence of the property. I ran out in company with my colleagues and went to meet the person in charge.

“They didn’t talk to us and the bulldozer entered the premises and started demolishing the church tenet and all the equipment in it worth over N70m.”
