She had also been accused of refering to gay persons as “paedophiles” and threatened to unleash the “burning anger” of God on her critics. Chika shared a 2014 post from an anti-LGBT Christian website on her twitter handle and wrote “Walking about naked in front of children is nothing but paedophelia being labelled liberalism,” she tweeted.
