April 20, 2012 – Pastor Jailed For Preaching To Monarch

An over-zealous Lagos-based Pastor, Aba Peter, who allegedly went to a palace and attempted to preach and pray to a monarch in Lagos, Southwest Nigeria, has ended up in prison custody.

The 42-year old pastor was held by the monarch’s aides and handed over to the police where he was charged to Ejigbo Magistrate’s Court with attempt to steal and loitering.

The incident happened at Ifoshi Road in the palace of Oojon of Ejigbo, Oba Moruf Ojoola.

Pastor Peter was remanded in prison custody at Kirikiri, Lagos after he was granted bail and he failed to meet the conditions.

The pastor claimed that contrary to what the police at Ejigbo station charged him with he wanted to enter the palace to preach and pray.

He explained that he had not even entered the palace before the Oba’s aides held and accused him of loitering and attempting to steal in the palace.

He was handed over to the police who subsequently charged him to court.

He pleaded not guilty.

The presiding magistrate, Mrs. M. B. Folami, granted him bail in the sum of N50,000 with two sureties in like sum.

The matter was adjourned, while he was remanded in custody.

We gathered that the pastor usually preaches in the area but was unlucky to have ended up that way on the fateful day.

    I see nothing wrong in preaching the gosple to the monarch, moreover, bible says go ye to the world and preach the word of GOD. So monarch should know that GOD is watchin. May GOD forgive for they don’t know what they do.

    Touch not my anointing and do my prophet no arm says by God. even God will forgive those that put him to jail but that they disobey God on touching the man of God they will surely be punish. i pray for our security men who will not investigate before arresting, if care is not taken they may end up flaming their selves.
