The presiding pastor of House on the Rock Abuja, Pastor Uche Aigbe, has tendered an unreserved apology to his congregation and the entire Nigerians for mounting the pulpit with an unloaded AK-47 rifle.

A remorseful Aigbe, in a video posted on the church’s social media page on Tuesday, showed the pastor in last Sunday’s service saying he was disappointed in himself for the consequence of bringing the firearm to illustrate a passage in the scripture before taking the decision.

KOKO TV had reported how the preacher caused a stir when he mounted the pulpit with the rifle to address the congretaion on ‘Guarding the Faith.’

The viral video clip of him brandishing an AK-47 rifle on the altar generated mixed reactions from Nigerians, with some people calling for his arrest by security agencies.

Following the tension created by the viral clip on social media and online blogs that picked the story from KOKO TV, the Church released a statement, saying the minister has always shown exemplary leadership since he became the pastor in 1999.

While the drama was ongoing, Aigbe was invited for questioning and subsequently detained by police authorities in the Federal Capital Territory.
