Police React As Abuja Pastor Storms Church Service Carrying AK-47


The Nigeria Police Force has disclosed that it will investigate Pastor Uche Aigbe, of the House on the Rock Church, Abuja branch, for mounting the pulpit with an AK-47 rifle.

It was reported that the incident took place on Sunday during the second service, which created a scene as the congregation tried to figure out the motive behind such. 

It was also reported that Pastor Aigbe used the gun for illustrative purposes while teaching the topic “Guard your faith” and how critical it is for each Christian to be on their guard.

“Some people are looking for trouble. And I came here prepared. Today, there are some pastors with the gift of divination who go about ripping people off. 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,” the Pastor said as the church erupted in laughter.

Reacting to the pastor’s action on Twitter, the Force’s Public Relations Officer, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, said the AK-47 rifle falls under the prohibited firearms in Nigeria and only certain law enforcement officers are allowed to carry it.

Adejobi said he had forwarded a complaint over the pastor’s action to the FCT Police Commissioner to act.

“But if it’s true, the pastor will have a case to answer. AK47??. It falls under prohibited Firearms in Nigeria, and no one bears it except an officer of the law, and not all of them have the right, selected sec operatives, but no individual has the right to bear it.

“The FCT police command will investigate it, I trust the new CP FCT, CP Sadiq,.. it’s shocking,” he wrote.
