The church was attackec
It was gathered that the masquerades, who were purportedly grieved that the pastor of the Church, Apostle Emmanuel Etim, had repeatedly preached against the practice of terrorising the citizens during the Ekpo masquerade festival, were led by a group of touts to attack the Church.
She said it was possible that the attack was due to the fact that their pastor has repeatedly preached against the fear of Ekpo masquerades and their activities, adding that the masquerades must have decided to physically attack the church as a result of their failed death threats to the church members.
According to her, they entered the church and started beating up people, destroyed church properties and in the process many members lost their phones, adding that many people were injured.
She stated that though nobody died, one of the injured persons was rushed to the hospital but has been discharged. She, however she said was not aware if the authorities of the church has reported the incident to the Police.
“They stole phones from the pastor and some choristers. So many people lost their property.
“The car of one of our pastors was vandalised, that was the only car that was destroyed. People were still coming to Church when the incident happened. The attack would have been very severe than that if the Church was filled,” she stated.
