Popular Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, has caused controversy after she took to the front of the church to reply a priest who’d called her out during her mother’s funeral mass. This happened in her hometown in Abba community of Enugu state.
The celebrated author who revealed that she left the church angrily over the Parish Priest’s verbal attack, said she came back to explain what she said during the interview about the Catholic Church in Nigeria because Abba community and the Catholic Church in the community mean a lot to her.
She said that the priest had had multiple occasions to speak to her privately but had opted to call her out about her comments on Nigerian churches in the middle of his sermon in view of everyone. She stated that priests were meant to guide parishioners and not attack them.
The author gave an instance of witnessing parishioners being locked out because the church was holding a fundraiser.
