From David Onwuchekwa, Nnewi
A member of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Chief Rommy Ezeonwuka has predicted the collapse of Igbo economy in the South East as a result of unabated deposits of corpses in the mortuaries.
Chief Ezeonwuka said this would be caused as a result of hundreds of thousands of ghosts and what he called zombies emanating from various mortuaries. He added that the collapse would be a boost to neighboring States including Delta, Rivers, Akwa Ibom, Benue and Cross River.
He declared with certainty that all economic activities would soon be relocated to those States while Igbo land, according to him, would continue to be tormented by ghosts.
“I will continue to say it; the deposition of corpses in mortuaries across the entire Igbo land is the greatest undoing of the Igbo nation and the consequences are grave and glaring. Almost all economic activities in the South East are shut down every week and we think this is just normal? No, it is not normal. It has a spiritual undertone. Things like this can only take place in a nation being possessed by zombies. Indeed, the future is bleak.
“The gruesome killings of our own people, wanton destruction of lives and property, cannibalism, drug trafficking and abuse, insecurity and violence ravaging the South East today can be directly linked to the influx of ghosts into the population, as a result of stockpiling dead bodies in mortuaries. Only zombies kill and destroy without thinking.
“Ndi Igbo should hear this once again; the souls of those whose corpses have been littered in mortuaries are rising up against the living. The tragedy and adversity experienced in Igbo land today is caused by ghosts.
“The ghosts are taking up war on the living because the living have failed to bury their corpses 6ft below so that their souls can move back to where they belong. Clear off all corpses in the mortuaries and watch Igboland begin to witness unity and progress again, ” he said..
He noted that it was against the law of nature, and that of the spirit, to retain the corpse of a dead person above the ground hours after their demise.
The dead, he insisted, should be buried immediately, saying that otherwise their souls would begin to wander about, possessing many of the living especially the youths to go into drug addiction and violence.
He argued that the living had failed to bury their dead ones, thereby blocking their souls from going back to the Creator for judgement.
Chief Ezeonwuka known as Ogilishi Igbo said it was unfortunate that when people were alive, they would not be shown love and concern only to show that to their corpses when they finally dropped dead.
“The living should only love a soul when in physical body. Once the soul goes out of the physical body, the good thing you can do for it, is to discard the corpse by immediate commitment to the grave because the delay affects the journey of the soul back to God for judgement as it is appointment onto man. After death, comes the judgement of God, and a soul whose body is still above earth, cannot proceed for judgement.
“The idea of storing corpses for days, months and even years in the mortuaries will destroy the Igbo nation. He who has ears should hear, ” he concluded.
