The Nigeria Police Force is investigating the actions of a Pastor who mounted his pulpit with an AK-47 rifle on Sunday.
The presiding pastor of the House on the Rock Church, Abuja Chapter, Uche Aigbe, mounted the pulpit carrying an AK-47 rifle.
The incident took place during the second service, which frequently has a high turnout of the congregation who comes from different parts of the Federal Capital Territory.
Brandishing the gun, the pastor picked his way to the altar, noting that he came prepared for people who were looking for his trouble.
He 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.”
But spokesman of the Police Force, Muyiwa Adejobi, via his twitter handle said investigation had commenced and an official statement would be presented thereafter.
