Muyiwa Adejobi, the Nigeria Police Force Public Relations Officer, has confirmed that the police have begun an inquiry into the preacher who ascended the pulpit with an AK-47 weapon on Sunday.
We previously reported that Uche Aigbe, the presiding pastor of the House on the Rock Church, Abuja Chapter, mounted the pulpit brandishing an AK-47 gun.
The event occurred during the second service, which often draws a large congregation from various regions of the Federal Capital Territory.
The pastor made his way to the altar, brandishing the revolver, while many members of his congregation exchanged glances, attempting to figure out what was going on.
A fearless Aigbe approached the lectern, aware of the tension his action had created, did not look at his worshippers. But as he made attempt to open his Bible, the preacher looked up and said teasingly, “Some people are looking for my trouble. And I came here prepared. “Today, there are some pastors with gift of divination who go about ripping people.
This is why we should carry our ‘guns’ and defend ourselves. I will particularly be coming very soon for some of you sleeping in the church.” His response threw the entire gathering into a fit of laughter as he continued preaching on “Guarding your hearts from false teachers” and “faith without work is dead.” However, the PPRO Adejobi said via his Twitter handle on Monday that investigation had commenced.
“We have commenced investigation into this. The PPRO FCT will make an official statement as soon as possible.
