The notice of the dissmisal was contained in a letter signed by Bishop of the Arochukwu/Ohafia Diocese in Abia State, Rt. Rev. Johnson of the Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion).

The letter which was dated “29,April, 2019, and circulated to all archbishops and bishops of the church stated that an investigation by the diocese, after it got wind of the allegation, confirmed that the two men were neck-deep in the act.

“The report got to us that they were indulged in the act of homosexuality. We investigated and found them guilty of such accusation. We were left with no option than to withdraw their letters of order (licences and certificates of ordination) and dismissed them from the ministry.

“We wish to inform you that the following clergy have been dismissed from the diocese of Arochukwu/Ohafia. They are Rev. Chukwuemeka Duru and Rev. Solomon Chukwuzubelu Okonkwo.

“Therefore, anyone dealing with these persons should tread with care as such can drag the image of the church to the mud.”
