His body now is in the mortuary. On Sunday 14/01/18 Abj East Dist. under the leadership of Rev. Chuks Ogbuji sent delegates who came to pray for the family ‘n comforted the Church. With heaviness in heart, the church cried for vengeance. That same Sunday evening, one of Armed robbers entered our late bro. home lying on a seat pretended to be sympathizer. He was there till 9-10pm.

Then the spirit of this widow could not contend with the person she was seeing @ that late hour. She stood ‘n challenged his mission, confession made open. Police were alerted ‘n he was picked up, b4 we know it, another person among them surfaced, making two. On interrogation, they led the policemen to the very one who shot our Elder. That one saw policemen ‘n ran, them (Police) wasted him. Proofing the word of God in (Leviticus 24:17) etc. Dear friends I decree this 2018, that God will waste our wasters. Destroy our destroyers in the name of Jesus I pray Amen. Join me pray for the family of our late brother Michael Ibu, that God will sustain their faith.
