It was indeed a black Sunday for the congregation of a Church as it's premises was destroyed by angry youths who invaded the church to punish the pastor who is alleged to have committed adultery with his members' wives. Below is how a Facebbok user, Blessing Akamugbe, reported the story on social media:
"It was pandemonium in Jesse today as unknown youths invade Pastor Emma Church known as Mountain of Prayers Ministry along the Jesse Sapele Rd Before Water Board over an alleged civil offence of adultery.
The angry youths said that Bishop Emma the General Overseer of the church has been sleeping with married women within and outside the church. He met his Waterloo when he slept with Chief Austine Omonode's wife, a former member of the church. It should be noted that Chief Omonode is the President General of Idjerhe Clan Development Union (ICDU).
It was unconfirmed whether the angry youths invaded the church on the order of the ICDU PG. But suffices to say that properties Worth hundreds of thousands were DESTROYED, 12 of the Members injured but no life was lost.
As at when the heat was on, Officers of the Nigerian Army arrested the ICDU PG to their base for interrogation. Other version of the story suggests that the invasion of the church has political undertone resulting from the recently concluded CDC election at one of Seplat based community in Jesse in which the Pastor won as against the candidacy of the PG. In finding means to bringing the pastor's image down hence the propaganda of lies.
He was advised to step down or face the embarrassment of adultery. His refusal to comply resulted to the invasion of the church on Sunday Morning when service was on-going but met the Bishop absent. They resorted to attack and destroying everything in the church.
Eye witnesses condemned the adulterous act of the Pastor if the story is true as well as blamed the highly respected Chief for giving the nod to his boys for the attack on the church of God which was the reason the Army got annoyed with the PG.
One thing that makes God the superior was this ; after the attack, Members of the church continued their service praising God and shouting Fire, Fire, Fire."
