Catholic Priest Drags Brother To Court, See Why

by AnaedoOnline

Rev. Fr Anthony Ali of the Nsukka Catholic Diocese in Enugu State has taken legal action against his brother Amobi Ali.

Fr. Ali dragged his brother before the Enugu-Ezike Chief Magistrates’ Court for allegedly assaulting and threatening him and their father John Ali.

In a charge sheet, MIE/6C/2021, the plaintiffs, Fr. Ali and his father, in a three-count charge alleged that the defendant on February 2, 2021, at Umuopu Community, Enugu-Ezike, Igbo-Eze North, assaulted and threatened their life.

On Thursday, the defendant pleaded not guilty to the charges.


Magistrate Sylvester Eze admitted the defendant to N100,000 bail with one surety in like sum following request by the defendant’s counsel Leonard Ekeh.

The magistrate who advised the family to go home and make peace, adjourned the case to March 10 for hearing, should the peace talk fail.

Briefing journalists after the court session, Mr Ekeh said it was a family matter that should be resolved at home.

Speaking further, he said the defendant was beaten, arrested and arraigned because he advised his father and brother to stop struggling over a piece of land that does not belong to them but to Ejikeme Odumegwu.

“I stood in for Amobi Ali who was accused of beating his father and his brother who is a Rev Fr. The counts were three which borders on assault and threat to life. It’s a family domestic issue which should be settled at home considering the presence of a Catholic priest,” he said.
