Brandishing the gun, the pastor picked his way to the altar as many members of his congregation exchanged glances trying to understand what was happening.
An unflinching Aigbe walked up to the lectern, aware of the tension his action had created, did not look at his worshippers.
But as he made attempt to open his Bible, the preacher looked up and said teasingly, “Some people are looking for my trouble. And I came here prepared.
“Today, there are some pastors with gift of divination who go about ripping people. 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.”
His response threw the entire gathering into a fit of laughter as he continued preaching on “Guarding your hearts from false teachers” and “faith without work is dead.”
However, the PPRO Adejobi said via his Twitter handle on Monday that investigation had commenced.
“We have commenced investigation into this. The PPRO FCT will make an official statement as soon as possible. Thanks,” he tweeted.
