During Sunday service yesterday, the presiding Pastor of the Abuja branch of the House on the Rock Church, Pastor Uche Aigbe, caused a stir after mounting the pulpit carrying an AK-47 rifle.
The news, after making it online, caught the attention of people.
With that, the Abuja Force Public Relations Officer, Headquarters, Abuja, Prince Olumuyiwa Adejobi, who first came across the news online, acknowledged it has been forwarded to the CP FCT to act on it and if it happens to be true, the said Pastor will have a case to answer as AK-47 falls under prohibited firearms in Nigeria, adding that no one bears it except such is an officer of the law, and even at that, not all have the right, but selected security operatives.
Adding that no individual has the right to bear it.
After reacting to the news, a user who commented what if the gun was handed over to him by one of their officers, got a reply from Prince Olumuyiwa Adejobi, saying that is why they investigate cases, but whatever it is, the Pastor has no right to bear arms except he’s a serving sec operative who has signed it officially but even at that, shouldn’t have taken it to the church or the altar.
