Nwbodo, a born Anglican had wedded Patricia in the Anglican Communion in the early 80s .

Not a few found the action of the former governor surprising as he was hitherto, a staunch Anglican. He single-highhandedly built the multi-million naira St. Mathew's Anglican Church in his hometown, Amechi, Awkunanaw in the 70s.

The controversy over the burial place of his late son, by his first wife,  pitched Nwobodo against  the church into which he was born, as the leadership of the curch sttod by the former wife.

Nwobod insisted that the his son would not be buried with his expanse compound but be buried in a land close to the compound.
