An angry congregation chased out a randy pastor for impregnating his housemaid.
According to Punch news, a randy pastor at the United Methodist Church, in the Oshodi area of Lagos was chased out of the church by the congregation.The randy pastor allegedly impregnating his housemaid who is also a member of his church.
According to report, the pastor, Barkuma Andrew, was stopped from leading the church seven months ago when the housemaid, Grace, had complications after aborting the pregnancy. The pastor lives with his wife, children, wife’s cousin, Favour, and Grace in a three-bedroom flat inside the church premises.
The congregation allegedly reported the issue to the church head quarters but no action was taken. The congregation decided to handle the situation theirselves.
The angry congregation chased the randy pastor out of the church premises.
Men from the Makinde police division, prevented the situation from degenerating.
A member of the church disclosed that;
My room is opposite pastor’s apartment and I was his secretary. When he started dating that girl (Grace), I called his wife’s cousin, Favour, on the matter. She said Grace used to tell her whenever the pastor had sex with her. At a point, I had to move upstairs when I could no longer bear it. The day that abortion happened, I was sleeping inside my room when I heard Grace screaming. I rushed there and saw blood coming out from her private parts. When the wife came back from one of her numerous journeys, he told her to send Favour away.
Another church member, John Komboroh, said the church was embarrassed by Andrew’s conduct, adding that they were tired of his leadership. He said:
The petition of adultery against the pastor had been sent to the bishop at the Central Conference. He came here, but did not do anything about it. That was why we wrote to the main body, the Southern Conference to give us another pastor. His (Andrew’s) action is an embarrassment to us. We don’t want him again.
