July 21, 2015 – 2 Pastors Of Assemblies Of God Church Turns Sunday Service Into A Fighting Field In Enugu
Two pastors of the Assemblies of God Church Nigeria and their supporters turned a worship service to a fighting bout on Sunday as each group battled over who should control the 27 Mount Street Parish of the Church in Enugu.
The latest battle is a new dimension in the leadership crisis rocking the church over who the authentic General Superintendent of the church is between Rev. Professor Paul Emeka and Rev. (Dr.) Chidi Okoroafor.
One of the Pastors, Rev (Dr) Nathaniel Udeze came with letters of posting and other court documents in preparation to be installed as the new pastor, but his arrival with his team of supporters was resisted by the resident pastor, Rev. Amaechi Agbo and his supporters, who vowed not to shift ground for any “intruder”.
The development, according to our reporter was the offshoot of the crisis which has factionalized the Church since 2014 with two General Superintendents (GS); Rev (Professor Paul Emeka and Rev (Dr) Chidi Okoroafor, respectively calling the shots at the highest level of the church.
The matter is currently in several courts including the Supreme Court to determine the true GS of the church.
