AK-47: Abuja Pastor Apologises Over Action

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

A remorseful Aigbe said he was disappointed in himself for not considering the consequence of bringing the firearm to illustrate a passage in the scripture before taking the decision.

He addressed his congregation midway through the Sunday Service that the traumatic experience he had in the last one week had given him a lot of concerns.

While apologising for the embarrassment his action had caused the church, he admitted guilt for not giving his decision to mount the pulpit with a firearm a second thought.

He said, “This morning, I stand before you with a deep sense of sobriety and contrition as I humbly address the event of last Sunday at the second service which most of us were a part of, where I used an unloaded firearm to illustrate some texts from the Bible regarding the good fight of faith.

“Of course, like you all know, it has caused a lot of embarrassment and pain to the entire church family, to you House on the Rock (The Refuge), to my immediate family and, of course, to myself. The decision that I made to use that firearm was not thoughtful. It has left me disappointed in myself. My action has been very traumatic for me, my family and, I am sure, for many of us. And I trust that we will never ever experience such again.”

While appreciating his family and the leadership of the church for the moral, physical and spiritual support he received since his trial started, the presiding pastor suddenly announced that he would be withdrawing from his pastoral assignments to reflect over the events of the past week and for healing.

According to him, the decision was taken after due consultation with the church leadership.
