THE crisis rocking the Imo State Polytechnic, Umuagwo, Ohaji/Egbema Local Council Area of the state, is far from over.

In fact, the crisis has degenerated to a spiritual level and the gods are being called in to offer solution.

Daily Independent sources disclosed that due to the crisis, the institution’s Rector, Rev. Fr. Wence Madu, has been reported to the priests of the dreaded Okija Shrine in Anambra State.

An invitation letter, which was allegedly sent to Rev. Fr. Madu, was signed by one Ukaegbu N. Ogidi, who claimed that there was a complaint of injustice against him.

Ogidi wrote that any respondent coming to Ogwugwu Okija must come with clean hands, warning the Cleric cum Administrator that “Ogwugwu kills only those whose hands are not clean, especially those who committed evil against their fellow human beings at work places, churches, mosques, markets and other public places.”

According to the letter, Rev. Fr. Madu knew about the issue at stake, “but, turned around to conspire and deal with an innocent person.”

The letter told the Rector that he “should feel free to reverse the injustice with your conspirators and collaborators against the complainants to avoid coming to Ogwugwu and other unpleasant consequences.”

The custodians of the shrine also told the Rector that he should on arrival, look for the Chief Priest for briefing and other formalities.

“But where you fail to come because of any reason, we shall come to your residence or office.  The truth must be uncovered at all cost,” the letter warned.

When newsmen called at the Rector’s office on Thursday, May 14, 2015 to confirm if he really received such an invitation, someone who claimed to be a staff at the office said that Rev Fr. Madu was not around.
