Plato, the Greek philosopher derived the etymology of the word 'demon' (Greek, daimon) from an adjective meaning 'intelligent' or 'knowing'. If this derivation is correct, it suggests that intelligence was considered a prominent characteristics of demons.

Though some people do doubt of the existence of demons, the fact remains that demons actually exist. Evidence from scripture, nature, history of comparative religions and human experience all testify to the existence of evil supernaturalism. In the physical system of reality, the invisible, hierarchical, spiritual personalities operates who are called “principalities, powers, world rules of this darkness, spirits of wickedness in the heavenly realms” Eph. 6:12. These spiritual agencies are servant of Satan.

According to the scripture, Satan and demons not only exist, but they work among humanity, particularly in those who, like Satan, disdain God and openly rebel against his laws.

Man is a soul personality and the highest tool of the soul (the spirit-man) in creation is the subtle essence called mind. It is through the mind that the spirit-soul transmits the awareness of being (consciousness) to all the psychic layers of the self-Mental, Memory and Emotional, including the gross material body.

Now there are four faculties of human mind which I shall not bother myself much as this is not my major concern here. But be informed that the mind is the centre of attraction and there is the fifth faculty of the mind known as the 'mind's channel of destruction'. As righteousness, peace and joy upholds the normal four fundamental faculties of the mind, so the fifth abnormal faculty of the mind has its own propensities through which the forces of darkness operate to enslave many. When an individual through mundane life exposes himself to the ubiquitous manipulation of the psychic entities (demons) his mind becomes a play ground for demonic experiment.

It is through the mind level that Satan and the multitudes of his unclean spirits advance their nefarious activities against man. Through this process, majority of people, politicians, pastors, business-men and women, Bishops, Philosophers to mention but a few have at one time or the other allowed the enemy of God to use them to advance one evil act or the other. Do remember that the mind is a store house and any spirit that controls the mind controls the man.

Yes, when the mind of any person becomes a playground for demonic activities, the mouth of the fellow will certainly utter volumes of lies without having a breach of conscience. This is the exact case of Gov. Okorocha of Imo State. I think what is happening to him in connection with so many lies and administrative contradictions may have been caused by some forces that are higher than our great and noble governor; as a result he needs deliverance. Oh yes, deliverance from the lying spirit that may have possessed his mind.

Okorocha's recent 'world' press conference held at the Government House Owerri on February 27, 2013 has made many people to nick-name Okorocha 'screen or TV governor', some call him celebrity governor for the obvious reason of spending over N23 million in each of his live television show. Okorocha since his inception as the Chief executive of Imo State may have spent over N2 billion only on television show. Judas Iscariot would exclaim, “To what purpose is this waste!” It is truly a waste because it is on record that Imo State for the first time lost out in this year's Federal Government Subvention from the Universal Basic Education Commission (UBEC) consequent upon non-compliance with the counterpart funding policy. Imo state lost out because the government of Owelle Rochas could not afford the N1 billion expected. This tragedy has not happened since the beginning of Chief Achike Udenwa's administration. Chief Ohakim sustained it and even left the sum of N3 billion in the coffers of SUBEB but 'some strong rats' went into the coffers and ate the money and rendered SUBEB helpless.

The impression the uninformed has about Imo State, is that Imo is so rich owing to too many lies Okorocha has told. When he newly assumed office he told us that Imo is too rich but that Ohakim and his men squandered the entire money and affirmed that he was saving N150 million everyday from Ohakim's profligacy. By now Okorocha should have saved up to N100 billion or more. Why is he still asking for N81.7 billion loan when he should have saved enough for both his private purse and for the good of Imo people? He simply lied against Ohakim.

The money Okorocha used to procure two private jets, if he is truly on a rescue mission, should have been used to provide for SUBEB Counterpart funding in order to keep the State in good fate. Those who crucify Chief Ohakim should ask themselves whether Ohakim bought any private jet during his four year tenure. Okorocha has only stayed for about two years, and we are talking of two private jets meaning before the next two years in 2015 he will build another White House in the space with our money. Okorocha…rescue your pocket my brother, after all is not your fault; it is the fault of Ndi Imo. But bear in mind that we are watching!

The one that could not stop goose-pimples all over my body was when our 'good and God fearing governor' opened his mouth to deny that his administration never requested for any approval from the Imo House of Assembly to source for N81.7 billion loan. On page 31 of the governor's 2013 budget speech (THE RESCUE BUDGET 2) there is a provision of N81,753,063,163 for 'Internal Loan' under projected 'Capital Receipts'. When Okorocha denied this when responding to a question asked by one journalist during the press conference, when he dismissed the insinuation that the loan implication of the budget was responsible for the delay in its passage, I started praying for Gov. Okorocha for God to deliver him from the spirit of lies. I prayed and prayed until I started speaking in tongues knowing that things have fallen apart in Imo State

The above reminds me of the biblical story of the destruction of Ahab when God wanted to deal with him, what he did was to possess the mouth of his prophets with the spirit of lies. The bible reports, “And the lord said who shall persuade Ahab that he may go up and fall at Ramothgilead? And one said on this manner, and another said on that manner. And there came forth a spirit, and stood before the lord, and said, I will persuade him. And the lord said unto him, wherewith? And he said, I will go forth and I will be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets. And he said, thou shalt persuade him, and prevail also, go forth, and do so” 1 Kings 22:20-22.

The above biblical story attests to the fact that the mouths of the prophets of Ahab were possessed by the spirit of lies. There is a spirit behind any lies one tells no wonder the Bible asserts that no liar shall inherits the kingdom of God. The bible further says, “Now the spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith…speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron” 1Tim. 4:1-2. Our governor is not alone in this aspect of life, there are so many people today that the only truth traceable to them is the early morning (good morning) greeting. Such people like our governor needs deliverance from the spirit of lies.

Another aspect that truly convinced me that Okorocha strongly needs deliverance is the aspect of his achievements as outlined in his 2013 budget page 11 where he claimed to have built a befitting accommodation for late Sam Mbakwe, Evan Enwerem, Chief Achike Udenwa and Chief Ikedi Ohakim respectively. In fact hear Gov. Okorocha, “We rescued the state from the shame of not building guest houses for the late Barrister Sam Mbakwe, by building not only a befitting home for him but also building a befitting home for all former Governors like Chief Achike Udenwa, Evan Enwerem and Ikedi Ohakim, as provided for by the laws of Imo State.”

I challenge Okorocha to mention the location of the buildings he claimed to have completed for the former Governors. Another lies designed to hoodwink Imo people. His Excellency Chief Okorocha, I respectfully request and encourage you, in the interest of transparency and accountability to publish the alignment of your proposed 1,000 kilometer road projects, their contractors, contract sum, expected completion dates. You lied to the nation that you have done 1,000 kilometer road even when you know that it is a lie your face was reflecting to your claims as if they are real. A demon must be responsible for this. Lying spirit still at work in Imo? Oga you need deliverance!

I do not know if the lying spirit has visited Imo State University too because our governor informed Nigerians in a television broadcast that Imo state University subvention has been increased to over 200% from N57 million to N253 million. This is amazing! Recently the Imo House of Assembly was calling for the declaration of emergency in the Law Faculty. This is because the Law Faculty lost accreditation, the Sociology department of Imo State University also lost its accreditation, and the Medical Faculty is also teetering on the brink of losing its accreditation.

Different departments in Imo state University are losing accreditation, yet our governor is spending millions on AIT live broadcast. If with N57 million subvention during Ohakim's tenure Imo state University never lost any accreditation how can IMSU loose accreditation with N253 million subvention from the present administration? The same spirit is working. It is on record that the traditional bursary paid to Law students of Imo State University has not been paid for two years now by this administration. With all this our governor was bold to lie about three weeks ago during the visit of Hon. Labaran Maku- the minister of Information and harbinger of Good Governance that Imo is too rich. During the time he announced the minimum wage he told Imo people that Imo is the richest state in the federation.Gov. Okorocha, what has happened to our money? The same spirit at work.

Today he has confirmed that he was lying when he clearly told Nigerians that he is actually seeking for loan from any institution. The lies are endless. We need God to set our governor free from the spirit of lies. God loves Okorocha and does not want him to perish. The men of God around him should be bold to tell him the need to be delivered form this evil spirit. Your Excellency, if they cannot help I am available to assist you because freedom is necessary for you because “if the son of man can set you free, you shall be free indeed”.

I remember immediately after the swearing in of Gov. Okorocha and during the thanks giving service at Assumpta Cathedral he was given the crucifix by Arch Bishop Obinna to swear, when he held the crucifix he said that let heaven and earth be against him if he was (is) an Ogboni member as was alleged. By holding the crucifix, a contact was hitherto established between Gov. Okorocha and the divine. Today can we say that the divine is against Okorocha and by so doing has attracted the entire forces of darkness that are at work in Imo State?

There should be an inter-denominational deliverance prayer that should be anchored by Arch Bishop Obinna or Bishop Okorocha of the Anglican Communion, or the State Chairman of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) or the state Chairman of Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria Bishop Maxwell Okorie on behalf of Gov. Okorocha because 'water don pass garri'. Is it that the Ogboni people are exasperated with Okorocha as a result they are praying against him for the reason that only God knows why or that the Arch Bishop Obinna under whose auspices the Imo gubber debate was organized (we all know the role he played) is now angry with Owelle over all his ignoble activities and his anger has attracted God's wrath that has produced the confusion that has dazzed Owelle or that Owelle's association with some evil forces have helped to attract all this to Imo State? Endless questions! Whether what is happening to him is as a result of swearing falsely or that he is possessed by evil spirit or that God is angry with him, we the people of Imo state own him the duty of praying for him.

I have made myself available for this prayer, though I am not an ordained Bishop but as a priest of God I know I can assist Owelle having assisted people with worst cases before. I am humbly urging the people of Imo to pray for our governor because there are more than the physical eyes can see. BY PROF. NATHAN PROTUS UZORMA email [email protected]
