UK Press Calls For Apostle Helen Ukpabio's Ban From Their Country
Popular woman of God and movie actress cum producer, Lady Apostle Helen Ukpabio, has been described as being a danger to children and may be banned from entering the United Kingdom if their media have their way.
The government had accused her of torturing, maiming and even causing the death of some children in the event of forcing them to confess to being witches and wizards.
She was once reported as saying;
If a child under the age of two screams in the night, cries and is always feverish with deteriorating health, he or she is a servant of Satan.
This statement of hers has made many to see her as an enemy of children and the British press are against her negative believes about children which they see as being detrimental to them.
The Independent newspaper in the UK wrote this about her:
The Home Secretary Theresa May, is being urged to step in to prevent a Nigerian “witch hunter” returning to the UK after she flew in to preach to congregations in London.
Lady Apostle Helen Ukpabio, founder of the controversial Liberty Foundation Gospel Ministries, is believed to still be in the capital after addressing three gatherings last week.
The Pentecostal preacher claims to have been betrothed to Satan as a teenager before being rescued from a cult at the age of 17. She now specialises in liberating captives in “deliverance sessions” that critics claim are little more than crude exorcisms.
Among her advice to parents is the suggestion: “If a child under the age of two screams in the night, cries and is always feverish with deteriorating health, he or she is a servant of Satan.”
Campaigners say such beliefs, prevalent in some parts of the developing world, can put children’s safety at risk. They have written to Ms May to urge that the pastor be banned from the UK after the current tour.
It is important that the UK authorities send a message to the world that branding children, or anyone, as a witch, is beyond the pale.
Lady Apostle Ukpabio has been in the forefront of hunting for witches in her native Akwa Ibom and her target happens to be little children and sometime, frail old men and women.
She has also been fingered in the torturing of these helpless kids so as to make them confess to being witches.
Most of her movies have been on the activities of witches and wizards operating and causing limitations in people's lives.
Do you think the British press is justified in wanting her banned from entering their country?
