A Nigerian pastor based in Anambra, Prophet Ebelenna Chukwu has threatened to use his “spiritual capability” to shut down the ongoing reality TV show Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) if President Muhammadu Buhari-led government fails to do so.
In a video which has since gone viral, the preacher said the future of the Nigerian child is at stake if the Federal Government should allow the programme to continue.
He claimed that children who have been asked to engage in online classes due to the closure of schools over the coronavirus pandemic now use their smartphones to watch Big Brother Naija.
“If Nigerian government does not shut BBNaija down, I will shut them down by force. With my spiritual capability, I can do it. I know who I am. I am not a prophet that is boasting. With my spiritual level, I will destroy BBNaija,” he said.
Chukwu runs Jehovah the Mightier than All Prophetic Church in Onitsha, Anambra State.
“President Buhari, I want to ask you, have you people sold this country to BBNaija? You people recommended online lessons for our children, we bought android phones for them to use and do online lessons and they are now using the smartphones we bought for them to watch this rubbish..”, he asked and fumed.
For the Pastor, there is no moral lesson in the ongoing TV reality show therefore the government should shut it down or he would do it spiritually.
