SHUT DOWN BBNAIJA NOW OR I WILL DO SO - NIGERIAN PROPHET TELLS FG
A self-acclaimed Nigerian Prophet, Elebena Chukwu, has said he will shut down the ongoing reality TV show, Big Brother Naija (BBNaija), with his spiritual powers if the Federal Government fails to do so.
The Prophet's warning comes Dara after Nigeria's Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, was reported to have asked the Nigerian Broadcasting Commission (NBC) to take the show down over COVID-19 fears.
The Anambra-based pastor has condemned President Buhari for not calling off the show amid the Coronavirus pandemic.
Chukwu, the senior pastor of Jehovah the Mightier than all Ministry, also said the reality TV show adds no value to Nigerians and promotes immorality.
"If Nigerian Government does not shut BBNaija down, I will shut it down by force. with spiritual capability, I can do it.
"I know who I am; I'm not a prophet that is boasting. With my spiritual level, I will destroy BBNaija. I'll use my spiritual power on them.
"So, it's better for you people to close them now because they are consuming and destroying the mind of our children. I cannot take this nonsense again from this country," Prophet Chukwu said in a video.
The 2020 edition of the show started on July 19th, and the winner is expected to win #85 milion as prize.
