AWARD-winning Nigerian writer, Chimamanda Adichie has replied a Catholic Parish Priest who verbally attacked her over comments she made about the Catholic church in Nigeria, during her mother’s funeral mass 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.

Adichie noted that the Parish priest has had several opportunities to call her privately to explain her stance but never did. She also added that Priests are meant to guide parishioners and not attack them.

Recounting how the priest alleged that she said she doesn’t attend Catholic Church in Nigeria because it is all about money, she explained that what she said in the interview is there are good things about the Catholic Church but she doesn’t like when people are forced to give money.
