A controversial traditional religion Activist, Mazi Mathias Ezeaku who was arrested during their Sunday worship last week and later reportedly released on bail has been re-arrested.
Mathias Ezeaku from the Southeast region of Nigeria is popularly known as the founder of the Gospel of Truth Organization as well as Omenala Bu Uzo Eziokwu, through which he has been carrying out different activities including philanthropic roles in society.
It would be recalled that Ezeaku, however, came to fame in recent years for his preaching against the Christian faith in Nigeria. He has often launched a deliberate verbal attack on Christian Religious Leaders, describing everything about Christianity as alien and therefore not consumable and unacceptable in Igbo Land and Africa at large.
That particular trend he chose consequently attracted a lot of people to himself who sang his praises as another savior of the people from what they viewed as religious enslavement and impoverishment. While others are against him over what they view as unbridled criticism of pastors and men of God.
Little wonder in 2021, Matthias Ezeaku Ejiofor reportedly took to his heel when he was declared Wanted Over the Defamation of Prophet Fufeyin’s Character..
Ezeaku was obviously on a futile assignment to tarnish the image of a popular man of God, Prophet Jeremiah Omoto Fufeyin following his subsequent clamp down.
Although It is not clear why Ezeaku has embarked on such an unpopular assignment, there are feelers that it is borne out of sheer wickedness and desperate attempts to provoke God’s anointed ones.
Despite the 2021 incident, Matthias Ezeaku in recent times reactivated his critical tendency to speak about the unverified ills of Pastors, Reverend Fathers, Churches, Ministries, and Christians at large, a last punch that almost broke the camel’s back.
His recent and earlier arrest was attributed to the alleged role of character assassination of some men of God including Reverend Father Mbaka, Evangelist Ebuka Obi, Apostle Suleman, Prophet Chukwuemeka Ohanemere popularly known as Odumeje, etc. It was however alleged that his arrest was also the aftermath of the criticism of Evangelist Ebuka Obi.
The incident which occurred on Sunday triggered mixed reactions among the Christians and Traditional worshippers and the likes of Evangelist Ebuka Obi have reportedly debunked any allegation suggesting that he was behind the scenes of the arrest of Mr. Mathias Ezeaku. Evangelist Obi furthermore pledged to reward anyone who could prove that he arrested Ezeaku.
Nonetheless, the entire social media space has been on agog with Ebuka Obi arresting Mathias Ezeaku for allegedly calling him fake.
Mathias Ezeaku who was released days ago was subsequently seen in an alleged hospital bed consequent upon the alleged beat given to him during his arrest on Sunday.
Ezeaku addressed his fans from the hospital bed thus:
“Ututuoma umuchineke, thanks once again for all your support and self-determination to defend our land and our unborn children, am still in the hospital receiving medical treatment, one of my lungs was affected due to the beating on that very Sunday by the police, but medical process has started.”
Barely 48 hours after Mr. Mathias Ezeaku was reportedly released, and subsequently hospitalized, he was reportedly invited by the police at Abuja and after a series of interrogations, Ezeaku has been returned to the behind bars pending investigation into the case presented against him.
According to reports, Mr. Ezeaku was playing the antics of his accomplices on the intelligence of the police and DSS. He was said to have jumped bail when he first returned from Abuja. Ezeaku allegedly took to his heel when he pretended to have gone to purchase medicine and later resurfaced in an alleged hospital where he disclosed that he was receiving treatments for what the security did to him during the first arrest on Sunday.
The situation report has it that Mathias Ezeaku is currently under the custody of the Department of State Service in Abuja.
A lot of people query the justification for the re-arrest allegedly jumping bail and calling on the Inspector General of Police and Human Rights Activists to investigate thoroughly as well as see to the fundamental rights of the embattled Traditional
On the other hand, concerns are raised that if Mr. Ezeaku is to be allowed to continue to sow the fruit of discord in the people over religion, a time shall come when he will turn the group into one that would bear arms illegally and carry out dastardly acts in the region.
