Anglican Church in Anambra sacks priest for allegedly impregnating help-seeking woman

The Anglican Diocese on the Niger has terminated the appointment of one of its priests, Rev Canon Lumenkriti Ebo, for allegedly getting a woman who came seeking for help pregnant.

While the church accused Ebo of impregnating a lady who went to his adoration ministry by telling her she had to sleep with him to get healing, Ebo also accused the church of taking his legally married wife and accommodating her outside her matrimonial home. Things became very heated between the church and the clergyman when the bishop withdrew the ordination license of Ebo over alleged immoral acts capable of undermining the reputation of the church.

Until the withdrawal of his ordination license recently, Ebo was running an adoration ministry at Umunya in Oyi Local Government Area of Anambra State.

Speaking on the face-off between the priest and the Diocese, the deputy chancellor of the Diocese on the Niger, Mr. Ben Uzuegbu (SAN) said the church decided to withdraw Ebo’s ordination license because it could no longer tolerate his excesses.
