The Arochukwu/Ohafia Diocese of Church of Nigeria in Abia State was on 29th April 2019 sacked two Gay Priests who were engaged in homosexuality. 

The Diocese after received this report and engaged into investigation and later discovered that the allegation against them were to be true.      

Their dismissed letters were signed by Bishop of the Diocese, Rt. Rev. Johnson Onuoha and the copy of the memorandum was copied to the Metropolitan and Primate of All Nigeria and Bishop of Abuja, the Most Rev. Nicholas Okoh. 

The contains of the letter reads thug:

“We wish to inform you that the following clergy have been dismissed from the diocese of Arochukwu/Ohafia. They are Rev. Chukwuemeka Duru and Rev. Solomon Chukwuzubelu Okonkwo.

“The report got to us that they were indulged in the act of homosexuality. We investigated and found them guilty of such accusation. We were left with no option than to withdraw their letters of order (licences and certificates of ordination) and dismissed them from the ministry.

“Therefore, anyone dealing with these persons should tread with care as such can drag the image of the church to the mud.”
