According to a local report during the Burial of the mother of the Catholic Bishop of Awka Diocese, the APC candidate in the November 16 governorship election, Senator Chris Ngige embroiled himself in unwanted controversy following allegations that he slapped a Catholic priest, Rev. Fr. Evaristus Ezekwona at a burial ceremony in Nanka, Agulu, Anambra State on Thursday.

Senator Ngige was said to have lost his cool as his supporters claimed that he erroneously thought that Rev. Fr. Ezekwona was deliberately standing in his way in a Burial ceremony in the village of Nanka and suddenly snapped, pouncing on the hapless priest, strangling him first and then unleashing a torrent of slaps on both sides of the clergy man’s face.

The incident took place at the at the burial of the mother of the Catholic Bishop of Awka Diocese, Bishop Paulinus Ezeokafor in Nanka which attracted prominent sons and daughter of the state including politicians.

This marks another anniversary of the former governor of Imo state, Ohakim in anger slapped and beat up a Reverend Father in Owerri, Imo state capital.

An eye witness, Obiora Onwuama, who observed the scuffle, revealed that after unleashing his fury on Rev. Fr. Ezekwona, Ngige was not fully satisfied and promptly instructed his personal aides to torture him and they promptly pounced and inflicted more bodily injuries on him.

“We were all horrified at the sight. Senator Ngige must have acted blindly because the man was dressed in his cassock. There were screams of shock and horror from the onlookers but Senator Ngige could not be stopped.
