The Universal Leader of the Brotherhood of the Cross and Star, Olumba Olumba Obu, has replied those tagging his followers as ‘blood suckers.’
Obu, who was represented by one of his ambassadors, Samuel Enoch, during a visit to Rivers State to light the Centenary torch marking 100 years of the Brotherhood of the Cross and Star, said that his followers were not vampires or blood suckers contrary to the belief of some people.
He described his followers as practical Christians who follow the life of Jesus Christ.
He, however expressed regret that some members of the public from different backgrounds were always scared whenever they saw his followers in their midst.
He said, “We are, this year, celebrating 100 years of his (Olumba) physical manifestation.
“We are here to tell the public that we are not blood suckers; we are not vampires.
“The spirit of God does not allow us to be scared of anything because one with God is in the majority.
“We are in Rivers to light the Centenary torch and when this happens on Sunday (tomorrow), Rivers will know peace.
“With the lighting of the centenary torch in Port Harcourt, peace would return to Rivers State.
“As we light the centenary light, peace will return to Rivers State. There will be no more violence,” he declared.
Speaking on the incessant killings in some parts of the country, Obu stressed that those that kill would also be killed.
He stated that no form of protocol would save Boko Haram members and killer herdsmen from facing the wrath of God.
“God says we must love one another; God is watching everybody. The world is in crisis because there is no more love.
“The Scripture says whoever that kills must be killed. Protocols will not save any killer; whether killer herdsmen or Boko Haram,” he added.
