I was looking for a land where I will conduct my adoration, I rented a place behind Queens College Nsukka. Bishop Onah chased me out of the place, saying I was causing noise and distracting the students of Queens.

The past governor of Enugu State, Gburugburu gave me this piece of land I’m staying in now. I told the Bishop that I have land and I took him there to see the land. He then said that the land is fine to be used to build the Marian Shrine.

I give everything to the church, yet the church wants to strangle me. But it can’t happen.
