St John's Anglican Church, Igbein, Abeokuta, was founded in 1947. Its 1st Vicar was Samuel Ajayi Crowther, Herbert Macaulay's grand-dad. It is a truly historical piece of architecture with unique character & dating from well b4 #Nigeria was thought of.
In any sensible country, St. John's Igbein will be a protected or listed building be an acknowledgement of the historical character of the building & will make it difficult to simply destroy the building at a whim
Rather than do this, some Philistines in Cassock have decided that the church needs to be uprooted & replaced with a new piece of garish architecture. The idea of knocking down St. John's Igbein or disposing of it wld be unimaginable in a civilized country
