Men of the Nigeria army have reportedly stormed an Assemblies of God Church in Yola, where an internal feud has degenerated into huge fracas.
The crisis rocking the Assemblies of God Church is said to have taken another dimension, hence, armed soldiers were forced to disrupted the church service in Jimeta-Yola, the Adamawa state capital.
According to The Guardian, the pastor of the church, Rev Patrick G Waziri, said that the military and the police invaded the church premises located behind St Theresa’s Catholic Primary School at about 10:00am and blocked the entrance to the church with their vehicles denying members access to the church.
He alleged that a leader of the church, who belongs to Chidi Okoroafor’s faction, brought the soldiers and threatened to return next Sunday to cause more havoc if the station pastor refused to handover to him.
However, the spokesman of 32 Armoured Brigade in Yola, Major Adamu Yahaya Ngulde, confirmed that the command received the complaint of what he described as illegal operations and that the command had set up an investigation panel to uncover the soldiers that carried out such illegal duty.
