A Catholic priest in Nigeria, John Oluoma has said that witches are
occupying the presidency and the National Assembly, including
government houses across the country.
Speaking during a sermon recently in Abuja, the priest said the places
are filled with “witches” who are “responsible for the death” of many
“Don’t get carried away, which witches and wizards am I talking about?
It’s not all those ones they say fly at night and with brooms. Ah,
those ones are not your problem.
“The witches and wizards I am talking about, they are in the
presidency, in the National Assembly, in government houses.”
The sermon is on Oluoma’s personal website, www.froluoma.com. The
cleric, according to the website, is a priest of the Catholic
Archdiocese of Abuja.
What the priest meant here, apparently, is that leaders who have held
down Nigeria, including ordinary citizens who have failed in their
service delivery, thereby leading to loss of lives should be branded
“They are civil servants, they are politicians, they are Hausa, Igbo,
and Yoruba. They are Catholics, Pentecostals, Protestants, Christians,
“If you are given money to do road and you don’t do the road and
somebody has an accident because of bad road and die, what do you
think you are? You are a witch! You have taken blood.
“You are given money to equip hospitals, you refused to build the
hospital or even equip it, and the medical attention that would have
saved somebody is not there and the person dies, what do you think you
are? You are a witch!
“In Nigeria, pensioners would be queuing to take their pensions of
N50,000 and they wait and wait until some would die because somebody
doesn’t want to push their file or somebody has swallowed the money
meant for their pensions. And you tell me you are a human being? No,
you are a witch!
“Those are the ones you should be afraid of, forget about the ones
that some men of God would be telling you about. The witches and
wizards that have killed destinies in Nigeria they are presidents,
governors, senators, members of the House of Reps, civil servants, and
Oluoma said Aso Rock, the nation’s seat of power in Abuja, has
truncated the “destinies” of many Nigerians.
The Catholic priest also called out Nigerian pastors.
“Another set of witches in Nigeria are fake pastors and men of God,
those ones who have given people wrong, pseudo-religious theories.
They have destroyed marriages, bankrupted businesses, and made people
to start thinking backward. They even block you from seeing where your
real problem is coming (from).
“Men of God that come into a family and a brother would become afraid
of his own brother,” he said.
The priest, who was teaching his congregation on why Nigerians should
be grateful to God, said Nigerians are only surviving by God’s grace
