The Anambra Government has banned religious bodies from using either public schools or its facilities to conduct religious services across the state.

The state Commissioner for Information and Public Enlightenment, Mr Don Adinuba announced the ban today in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Onitsha.

Adinuba said the ban became imperative because of the ongoing seeming ownership tussle of Bishop Crowder Memorial School, Onitsha, being contested between the state and the Diocese on the Niger, Anglican Communion.

Anglican Communion, Legal Secretary Anaeto, in a statement alleged that the state government had refused to make public the report of the fact finding committee on the ownership of the school set up by former Gov. Peter Obi.

But the commissioner dismissed the allegation, saying that the school established by government during the colonial era had operated since then by the state government till date.
