Nollywood actor, Yul Edochie has called on Nigerians to embrace tradition and culture so as to be free from slavery.

The actor, who recently opened an online Church, took to his Instagram page @yuledochie to give the advice.

He charged Nigerians to refrain from burning deities, stressing that they are not evil.

“Deities are not evil; Nigerians should desist from burning shrines and traditional deities.

“It was the white man that convinced people to believe their traditions are evil; the ploy was to make us abandon our ways and embrace theirs so as to make slavery easy.

“Nigerians need to wake up and start embracing their traditions and culture; many deities acknowledge God Almighty.

“Burning them could bring perpetual trouble. If you don’t understand something, leave it. If it is not disturbing you, don’t disturb it,” he said.

The actor’s advice has triggered a backlash as Nigerians have taken to social media, urging him to stick to one religion.
