Police detain Nigerian pastor who brandished AK-47 during church service
A Nigeria pastor, Uche Aigbe, has been trending on social media following his use of an AK-47 riffle at his church.
It is unclear whether the riffle of Pastor Aigbe, who is also the Presiding Pastor of the Abuja chapter of the House on the Rock church, was loaded with ammunitions or not.Subscribe
But reports are that he mounted the pulpit on Sunday with the deadly riffle just to send a word of caution to some men of God "with the gift of divination who go about ripping people."
Pastor Aigbe's gun was reportedly given to him by a police officer, Inspector Musa Audu.
The said police officer has been recommended for dismissal by the Commissioner of Police, Federal Capital Territory Command, Sadiq Abubakar.
Inspector Audu and Pastor Aigbe have been detained by the Intelligence Response Team, Force Intelligence Bureau, Garki, Abuja, on Monday, according to information sourced from the Punch, a Nigerian-based news site.
