The Arochukwu/Ohafia Diocese of the Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion) in Abia State has announced the sack of two gay priests.
This dismissal comes after several accusations and investigations on the two priests for indulging in homosexuality at the Arochukwu/Ohafia Diocese of the Church of Nigeria were found to be true.
After they were found guilty of being gay priests, the church issued a letter, “Notice of dismissal from ministry”, dated April 29, 2019, to them. The letter was signed by Bishop of the Diocese, Rt. Rev. Johnson Onuoha.
The memorandum which was also copied to the Metropolitan and Primate of All Nigeria and Bishop of Abuja, the Most Rev. Nicholas Okoh, warned any persons dealing with the expelled clerics to be mindful as such could dent the image of the church.
