Yesterday, a Sunday service at Christ Apostolic Church in Lagos, ended in a brawl as Pastor and Church Members engage in a fight over money.
It all started in praise and worship, members enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere filled with African gospel songs by the choir.
As the church members got charged, nobody was even ready for what was about to happen until a man climbed the altar and desecrated it by attacking the pastor. These, Shoved peace out of the window and anarchy rained in the most unlikely place.
A huge crowd were seen on the streets trying to understand the pandemonium. The Pastor who was accused by some of the members of raising funds and keeping it in his purse rather than accounting to the authority, was beaten and disgraced out of the church.
Another member Badejo Adelu, who spoke with TVC said the pastor is fond of causing problems in the church, and he can’t take it. The bible said fellow peace with alll men. He equally accused the pastor of making bad covenants with members.
The Pastor identified as Michael Oni who gave reason of the Fracas, said he hasn’t been paid for months and also he has demanded of his account from the church but they refused showing him and he then instructed that nobody should remit any money to the authority without his consent.
