House on the Rock has explained why Uche Aigbe, its Presiding Pastor in Abuja, mounted the pulpit carrying an AK-47 rifle.
Aigbe caused a stir during Sunday Service when he mounted the pulpit with a rifle.
The incident took place during the second service, which frequently has a high turnout of the congregation who come from different parts of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
This created a scene as the congregation tried to figure out the motive behind such.
“Some people are looking for my 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,” he said as the church erupted in laughter.
Daily Trust reports that the pastor is currently being detained by the Federal Capital Territory Police Command.
