Have you ever boarded a bus from any of the inter-state bus terminals before while travelling? Then you will sure know those pastors who jump into filled buses to preach and pray for “journey mercies” for occupants of the bus before the start of the journey. They also receive “offerings” from willing passengers.
Well, one of such Pastors got into sex-related trouble last Saturday in Lagos…
He was lynched at Toyota Bus stop, front of the popular Ladipo Spare Parts market, when some condoms allegedly fell out of his Bible as he preached the ‘Word of God’ to occupants of a bus. According to a source, the self-acclaimed pastor was dragged out of the commercial bus and beaten into a pulp before he was rescued by some police officers.
The Pastor [names withheld] had embarked on his journey from Apapa and proceeded to ‘preach’ to the people on the bus, using very strong words like “If you wear trouser you’ll go to hell! The Devil invented Make up! Weave-on is from Marine Kingdom! If you have pre-marital sèx you will burn in hell and your skin will peel!”
It was learnt that the people in the bus were moved by his preaching. An eye witness, Mr. John Mbakogu, who was on his way to his shop at Ladipo Market, said:
“His preaching was amazing until the pastor raised his hands to cast the demons out of one girl, and 2 Durex condoms fell out… The angry men in the bus who had been having pangs of guilt due to the pastor’s preaching about sèx suddenly got really angry and pounced on him.”
I hear two people were arrested and the pastor was said to have claimed that he also preaches safe sex.
