Anambra - The Catholic Archdiocese of Onitsha, Anambra, has denied that the church had a hand in the demolition of an Anglican worship centre in the state.
The Ebenezer Anglican Church in Oyi Local Government Area was demolished two weeks ago by unknown persons.
The Director of Communications in Onitsha Archdiocese, Rev. Fr. Pius Ukor, said on Sunday that the church was civil and diplomatic in its dealings and would not involve or associate itself with such an act.
Meanwhile, the President-General of the Nkwelle-Ezunaka Community, Dr Chris Eluemunoh, said that the incident had nothing do with the Catholic Church.
Eluemunoh said that the Church could not have connived with unknown persons to perpetrate such act.
On Monday, Anglican faithful embarked on peaceful demonstration in Onitsha, and alleged that the state government and Catholic Church have a hand in the unholy incident.
