PATRIOTIC Front (PF) youths, led by their national chairperson Kelvin Sampa, have protested Nigerian Prophet Andrew Ejimadu’s attacks on President Edgar Lungu in a letter addressed to the Nigerian government.
In a protest letter dated June 9, 2020, addressed to the Nigerian Ambassador in Zambia and signed by Sampa and 10 PF youth chairmen from all the 10 provinces, the youths charged that the continued social media utterances against government by Ejimadu, a Nigerian national popularly known as prophet Seer 1, were aimed at defaming the Head of State.
“It is my singular honour to write you, Your Excellency. Kindly accept my utmost regards and considerations. Your Excellency, I write to protest in the strongest terms the sustained unwarranted inflammatory, malicious, slanderous and criminally defamatory attacks by the said Mr Andrew Ejimadu, popularly known as Prophet Seer 1 against His Excellency President Edgar Chagwa Lungu, President of the Republic of Zambia and his Government. Mr Ejimadu, the founder of Christ Freedom Ministries (CFM) once lived in Lusaka, Zambia, and was arrested and deported in 2016 for allegedly raping a teenage girl, among other numerous allegations against him,” Sampa stated in the letter.
“For months on end, Mr Ejimadu has been running a sustained hate and propaganda campaign via social media and television platforms against President Lungu and his government. He has been using these platforms to maliciously and criminally defame and malign President Lungu and his senior government officials. As National Youth Chairperson for the ruling Patriotic Front Party and as a bonafide Citizen of the Republic of Zambia, I find Mr Ejimadu’s utterances and conduct highly offensive, repugnant and an affront to the sovereignty and territorial authority of our state, Zambia.”
He stated that Seer 1’s utterances should not be allowed to continue as they were targeted at inciting hate and anger among Zambians against an elected leadership.
“It’s been observed that Mr Ejimadu’s attacks are aimed at raising hate and anger in the Zambian people so that they can rise against a legitimately-elected President and his government. This is totally unacceptable and cannot be allowed to continue,” complained Sampa.
