Feb 15, 2016 – Drama As Nigerian Soldiers Disrupt Assemblies Of God Church Service In Effurun Delta State, Chase Out Worshippers

The ongoing crisis in the Assemblies of God Church took a dangerous twist on Sunday morning as troops took over an Effurun, Delta State branch of the church.

Worshippers told our reporter that Armoured Personnel Carriers (APC) stormed the Glory House Parish of the church on Oti Street, off Aka Avenue, Effurun, and ordered worshippers to close.

“We were preparing for service when they (soldiers) came. They were menacing and prevented us from continuing the service. We had no option but to close,” a source said.

Commanding Officer, 13 Battalion Lt Colonel Patrick Igwe said he was not aware of the incident.

Sunday’s incident came on the heels of a similar invasion of the church by thugs.

    Why not March into sambisa forest and disrupt the activities of those blood sucking demons.

    Kool@ Jacob Flow. These Military guys seem so good when it comes to what is not their job. They are now used solely for intimidating civilians. I know that this thing they did was not authorised, anyway. Maybe if one or two of them were recognised, they could be traced down to how it came about, and purnished accordingly.

    Don’t blame the soldiers THAT MUCH, browse the origin of the “crisis” on google. some factions of the church are using soldiers to fight other fashions IN THE SO-CALLED HOUSE OF GOD.

    This is a bit sketchy, so none of the congregation has phones with camera to video the incident. please let us be objective. if they came there with APC then it must have been from a nearby station. were they on patrol on trailing some militants? it beggars believe what is the purpose of their visit to the church. it is well know that military operation are not disclosed to the media until it is concluded hence the response from the commanding officer.

    Dcn ENO.

    The warring faction in Assemblies of God should remember the song which says God is watching from a distance. Let them repent and cry to God for almost dragging his name to the mud. We are however consoled that whatsoever a man/woman soweth that he/she shall reap Gal. 6:7. Remember there is God
