Anglican Priest Resigns, Forms Polygamous Movement

Rev. Ogbuchukwu Lotanna, an Anglican priest serving in the Nnewi Diocese in Anambra State, has left the church.

In his letter of resignation, Lotanna, a lawyer from Mbanagu Otolo Nnewi, said that God had instructed him to launch a movement in favor of polygamy.

He asserted that the “Gideonites” movement would promote polygamy with the goal of lowering the prevalence of sexual vice in society.

Additionally, he stated that the temple will be known as the “Gideonites Temple.”

He pointed out that polygamy is not a sin, contrary to what is generally being preached.

According to him, what God hates is divorce of any type, and sleeping with another man’s wife.

He insisted that God desired men to even marry more than one wife, instead of going for someone’s wife or ladies they were not married to.

He said he had taken his time to discover the truth the church had hidden from members for a long time, adding that it was high time people were told the truth.

His colleagues expressed shock at Lotanna’s action, saying that they never expected such.

Lotanna ordained an Anglican priest on December 22, 2019, at Cathedral Church of St. Mary’s Uruagu, Nnewi, is married to Chinyere Abigail, who hails from Umuogbu village Achara in Awka North of Anambra State.

No official reaction yet from the Anglican Diocese of Nnewi about the development, as the diocese is busy with the activities of its 2022 synod.
