AN Anambra-based Chief Priest, Nnamdi Anaeze Ezegbo, has warned a man who allegedly stole the head of a ram used for sacrifice to return it or face the wraths of the gods.
According to Ezegbo, the man stole the head of a ram sacrificed to a deity at Iba Okaka Shrine, Abor village, Umuoji in Idemili North Local Government Area of the State.
The man was said to have dug up the buried head of the animal used in scarificial rites.
Ezegbo said, “I slaughtered a ram to appease the gods to ward off all evils here and the head was buried as demanded by the Udo deity.
“While some other parts were cooked and shared among those that were present, including a suspected thief notorious in the Community, the head of the ram was buried.
“In the night of the fateful day, when we had all left, the suspected thief stormed the shrine premises and exhumed the ram head which he stole for protection and power, knowing the efficacy of the Udo deity.
“I have advised him to return the head of the ram to avoid incuring the wraths of the deity.”
