Jan 22, 2013 – Woman Sues Redeemed, RCCG Church Over Noise Pollution In Lagos

An aged woman identified as Esther Ogunsalu, a resident of #4 Sogunle St, Abule Onigbagbo Estate in Ikeja, Lagos recently sues a Redeemed Church of God (Chapel of Victory) for allegedly disturbing her peace with their programmes. www.naijagists.com

The alleged witch woman accused the RCCG church of disturbing her peace anytime they conduct their religious services.

While defending herself in court, she said:

“Their noise prevents me from sleeping and triggers my hypertensive heart disease.” .

To cut the long story short, Justice Aishat Opesanwo referred both parties to a multi-door court house for mediation

At the courthouse, both parties signed a document to amicably settle the dispute as the mediator huged the church to maintain zero noise pollution.

  1. can she stop stadium noise or can she stop Muslims praying on the main road on fridays. dis people don to take christian for granted.

  2. She needs to be helped. So etching is wrong with her.

    What of Moslems prayers with horn speakers on top of roofs all over Nigeria?

    Why should the judge say there should be zero noise level?

    Is it because she is a Moslem?

    May The Lord forgive this old woman that needs Christ urgently before dying.

    Let the redeem church show love to her, visit her and get her converted to Christ before she dies.

  3. Brethren in CHRIST.
    ” PUBLIC PEACE” is a human-right, No No No we christians should also understand what the bible says,
    “worship GOD in truth and in spirit” Yes David also said, MAKE A JOYFUL NOISE UNTO THE LORD, but in a peaceful manner not constituting nuisance in the environments….. and Apostle PAUL also said “be at peace with every one”
    “REDEEMED is of no doubt a church of GOD” but should not join other fake churches around in disturbing the “PUBLIC PEACE”

    like in the western world where basic infrastructures works, Churches, factories, Residential areas and other structures are appropriately situated.

    Therefor no one should see the WOMAN as a “WITCH” but to peacefully consult and dialog with her to withdraw it out of court no matter what must have transpired,

    *** Are you sure, according to the Lagos state “TOWN PLANING CODE” if the church is situated appropriately.

  4. I used to live 3 houses down from this church on the same street, the noise never bothered me, mama lives 8 houses away from the church, everyone on the street says she’s a witch, we all used to run away from this woman, I can guarantee u, the prayers are the ones killing her. I cannot believe she’s complaining, even from my house which is almost opposite the church, when u are indoor, you will not hear anything, unless u come to the street, Mama’s house is 8 houses down the street, almost like from allen roundabout to Opebi estate junction. she is just a witch, I always ran away from this mama, God is in control

    • momo your healt is quite diferent from mama own pls respect the woman tried to be godly and not only religios

  5. My broz na true talk u talk so,make them go stop all muslim from blocking the road now,if no be christianity them they take 4 granted,nonsence judge.

  6. The lady is absolutely correct in exercising her rights. Must the Church resort to loud noise whenever they conduct their services? There are RCCG and other churches overseas that dare “never” conduct services in such way that would constitutes public disturbance to their neighbours without facing the consequence. It is only in Africa they practice such nonsense. It shows that we have no respect for ourselves neither regards the law. Same goes to the Muslims as well. Government need enact law that would ban such practices. Churches and Mosques could still conduct their services without using the means of loud noise in doing same.

  7. Is she not a christian? Is church service a noise? That woman must have a skeleton in her cupboard joo!

  8. What about the deafening noises frm muslim horn speakers all over the Nation.
    U guys are taking us Christians 4 a ride.
    Very soon our God will answer U. Very very soon

  9. Better. Her health is at stake with that noise. They shld be considerate. Did they learn Christ to be so? No. Jesus Christ d Great Teacher did not kill people with noise, rather He preached frm house to house and weneva he found pple. Let follow his footsteps. Agape

  10. *****,wat is d basis of mentioning muslim? Afterall islam is nt a religiou of dancing. She has d right to complain 4 her health. Muslims dnt dance and sing in dia mosque and dia4 does nt disturb d public.

  11. ambassador may u live long, its ha ryt n no one has d ryt 2 trample on it no mata wat its all abt….no 1 should blame ha joor….if na me, I 4 do d same tin

  12. at abdul if Muslim is not dancing and singing what about their prayer on the high ways.i am not a muslim but i can even call muslim prayers from A to Z. because it is a national anthem in my street. what can government says about dat. ..

  13. Must we distub one and other in the name of religion in this country called Nigeria, FGN must do something about these nonsense, where you can not sleep at every hours 24/7 Night vigil unlimited, can they do these in a civilised country like America, and I you complain about disturbance they will Tag you name witch or enemy of God.
    But God dosn’t want you to disturb others with your enjoyment.

  14. We Africans are so funny sentimental traditional and religious and these are the things that holds us in bondage. U will not b surprised if some group of fanatical Christians go and mobb the woman and call her a witch i stay in southafrica and u dont have church in d corner of every street this hypocrisy must stop every mosque or church must turn in their speakers during their worship time and respect other peoples peace try this abroad and u will have urself 2 blame even these big churches that has branches abroad will not try and disturb the peace of people living around but in Nigeria everything goes God help Nigeria and God help Africa

  15. Ojo ur totally out of point, no one can bliv u for saying dat muslims pray on d highway,afterall d call 4 muslim praying only last 4 seconds nt even minutes. Abeg make wuna allow mama make she enjoy her old age, wat kind of public disturbance b dis? Are we into dancing and drama competitn all in d name of religiou? Mama carry go joor.

  16. what does muslim ve 2 do wt ds prob? Cos some of u don’t think b4 u talk, afterall, it is not mentioned dt d woman is a muslim, someone zd we shld b Godly n not religious

  17. Nigerians are just hypocrites… Did the woman say they should stop worshiping? Let all these churches go and trythese their noiseful ways in developed countries and see if they wont seal them up. Daystar church is big and they have it all, yet U’ld hardly hear any thing frm even the gates of the church. Worshiping God is not by shouting or loudspeakers.

  18. I used to live in a peaceful environment in abuja until 2. Churches were built, harvest house and winners… Now its hell most times esp on Sundays cause its like they are competing for who is louder.

  19. Pls, let us worship God in spirit and avoid this noises, they are creating a lot of trouble to our health. Momo is not a witch she is only complaining and need assistant. If our hearths are pure, there will be no need shouting befor Jesus could hear, please my fellow brethen in christ, do the right thing, no shout and God will hear our prayers.

  20. Hmmm! Otunba are u for God??? I have listen to all you comment. But one thing i wanna tell you both Christain and Muslim. Most of you dnt understand. If you have Jesus is your life it will tells. Mama if u bliv in God u will go to dat church and God will deliver you. For noise pollution let us respect ourselve. Although in the bible the people of israelite shouted hallelluyah and they over come. Let us doing everything according to the will of God

    • just be sure am for God my dear brother ,remember what jesus christ was preaching is love, where is love among us people? if the old woman is not a chistian must any one of us judge her or call her a witch? ,the will us god is love your neighbor like yourself.thou shall not judge.

  21. No body has the power to judge. Only God
    muslim or Christian we are all one and if such did nt happen hw will there be news?

  22. Mama is right, not that i surport mama, but i am outside country, i am not in nigeria atall, police have sent MOUNTAIN OF FIRE in italy-torino-( YOU CAN FIND OUT AND A LOT OF CHURCHES LIKE THAT OUTSIDE NIGERIA) away from 2 diffrent place because of there noise making , so what you people are saying mama is right. while you people are in surpport is because nigeria are full of Evil.mama is 100% right.but let us worship GOD in sprit not noise thanks

  23. My prblm with us black is dat we Ignorant of our religion, dis issue is no abt Muslim or christian, d mama just exercise her right. if u tnk any Mosque or Church is disturbin, u can do d same instead of calln her names nd criticisin anoda religion. who re u 2 judge? pls we should always tnk twice in wat ever we re sayn. 4 d fact u re redeemite doesnt make dem perfect, we re one being frm one God

  24. Pls. im using the opportunity to call on all churches who had gone abroad or even in Nigeria to purchase sound instrument; speakerssssssss (only God knows how many watts), synthesizers, and etc positioned at strategic corners in the church to blow out praises, worship and messages should consider the health of the worshippers, make the environment for praises and worship sound friendly. Afterall blasting sound does not make one a good or bad christian.

  25. I had to browse for this, this is 4:21am and this church has been praying loudly via their microphone since 12:00… I have to get to work tomorrow, and I haven’t an ounce of sleep… it’s painful and annoying…. I am not asking them not to pray or whatever they do, but they should keep their noise to a nearest minimum, if it was juz a two hours prayer session I can manage. . but for four hours.?? haba!!!! and for those who would complain about the Muslims… a complete call to prayer is 30sec… a prayer session last from 3 to 5 minutes relatively… with just intermittent calls… so please whom can I complain to
