The Igbo nation's spiritual leader, Chief Rommy Ezeonwuka, has assigned the Supreme Court ruling against former Imo state immediate governor Emeka Ihedioha at his vindictive disposition.
He said he expected the gods to react against him by demolishing structures and buildings dedicated to the gods of the earth before the Supreme Court judgment.
Ihedioha of the People's Democratic Party was dismissed on Tuesday by the Federal Supreme Court, which declared Hope Uzodinma the winner of the All Progressives Congress (APC) of the 2019 governor election.
Reacting to the trial on Wednesday, Ezeonwuka, a member of the All Alliance Progressives Grand (APGA) Board of Trustees, said he had raised the alarm before his apparent vindictive actions against Ihedioha against his predecessor.
He said: “Ihedioha came and focused on the demolition of structures and buildings set up by former Governor Rocks Okorocha and the gods reacted.

“I warned that the demolition exercise will bode ill for the Ihedioha government and warned that it must retrace its steps and focus on its own agenda.
“I said that the day I condemned the demolition of a mosque in Trans Amadi in Port Harcourt by Governor Nyesom Wike.
I condemned the demolition, along with what Ihedioha was doing in Imo State, because as a spiritual leader, I know they suffered the wrath of the gods.
“You cannot demolish a structure or building dedicated to a deity or legacy of a man loved by the gods of the earth and expect the spirit of the gods to be quiet. They will fight back and fight back. "
Ezeonwuka said he would continue to advise Ndigbo on the laws and rules of the gods, the culture and tradition of the ancestors, to prevent them from inciting the wrath of the gods.
"As the spiritual leader of the Igbo nation, I am under obligation to use spiritai to meet the challenges Ndigbo faces and I will not give up on doing just that in the best way possible," he added.
