It was an indeed a great shocking to one Mr. Charles Onyema of Onusa Nkwerre Imo state part of Nigeria when he been threatened to be killed by his own kingsmen in his village if refuse to come back to the village and take his rightful position as a chief priest of their gods (Ashmiri).

According to our findings on Tribunepoint Weekly, it was gathered that, Mr. Charles Onyema was born into the eastern part of Nigeria (Igbo) family whom in the family they believed in idol worshiping and witchcraft spirits.

Tribunepoint Weekly correspondents digged more into this to discover that Mr. Charles Onyema’s father was the then chief priest before he passed on and the uncle took over the position until he also died and the position also transferred to another person in the family circle.

Mr. Charles was said to bluntly refused to join their idolatry rites of him becoming the next chief priest just like his father and uncles due to the fact that he had become a Christian and a believer in Christ.

Moreover, Mr. Charles Onyema got converted into Christianity in order to avert his family’s idolatry worshiping but on the contrary, his family did not left him to his decision rather they began victimizing him and threatening him to return to their idol worshiping and assume the chief priest position.

On June 8, 2018, he received a threatening call from his home town that if he fails to come back and assume the position, he and his family would be wiped out one after the other.

This got him shocked and frightened for his life and that of his wife and five children.

Speaking to a anonymous source by our correspondents said that Mr. Charles Onyema was said to had gone to make report of the threats he’s been receiving from his family members on the basis of him not coming to accept their idolatry worshiping.

The police men got the report noted down but never swinged to action for a protective measure for him and his immediate family (his wife and 5 children).

The threat from his family on his life and that of family became unbearable for them that he and his family had to relocate to Lagos to get safety away from his family members whom are after him and family.
