A video circulating on social media shows a clergyman brandishing a shotgun while lecturing at church on Sunday.
He displayed the revolver on the platform and told his congregation that he purchased it in 1994, making it his 28th year of ownership.
The cleric’s choice to carry a gun while preaching comes a week after unknown gunmen assaulted a Catholic church in Owo, Ogun state.
He claims that the gun is completely registered and that he is authorized to carry it for self-defense. He stated that it has been renewed twice and that he wants to renew it again due to the escalating security threats.
