A man who has been identified as Bodmas Prince Kemepadei from Sagbama, Bayelsa State has rejected Christianity.
The man publicly denounced his Christianity and accepted the Egbesu worship.
Egbesu is an ancient war deity entrusted to the Ijaw ethnic nation by the Almighty to defend themselves in times of war and oppression.
The ancient cult declined after the successful British occupation of the Ijaw lands in the late 19th century.
The Niger Delta University, Wilberforce Island graduate took to Facebook on Tuesday, November 24, to announce the denounciation and reaffirm his obeisance to Egbesu deity, saying that he has realized that that he was duped by foreign myths.
According to Kemepadei, he believes that the “true worship of God is in our right conducts and not in religious association and buildings.” He concluded by challenging his friends to publicly denounce their Christian faith.
