Governor Emmanuel Udom of Akwa Ibom State said he was dragged to court by ‘witches and wizards’ in the state for building a Christian worship centre in the state.

Governor Ndom gave the disclosure while addressing journalists over the weekend in Uyo, the state capital.

According to the governor, building the structure was necessary for Akwa Ibom, “as a state named after God, to build a temple for God.”

In his words : “All (the) witches and wizards came together and took me to the court that we are building a Christian Worship Center.

“They say they are atheists. The case is in the court, we won them but they have appealed.”

Residents of the state have criticized the building of the structure, stressing that the money should have been used for other development needs of the oil-rich state.
