Frustration, desperation, despair, depression - these connected emotional feelings can cause a man who is strong and full of conviction to lose faith and simply do strange, unimaginable things. Such is the case of a particular evangelist who was somewhat pushed to the wall by the problems he was facing and made to do something unbelievable.
The said evangelist took to the streets to spell out his woes to the world. The man, who can be said to be deluded, had been preaching the gospel as he is often known to do. But rather than preach the 'good news', his words had been of sheer frustration.
As it appears, the evangelist took to shouting and screaming that he needed a car, as he was tired of the poverty and frustration that has accompanied his ministerial work. According to him, having a viable means of transport would help him preach better and represent the people he was talking to even more.
It is not known whether the man was talking directly to God or to the people that were on the street he was preaching. However, what is known is that he was clearly not in his right mind.
Talking more about his poverty-stricken situation, the preacher talked about how his shoes were overused and worn out from too much trekking. He also pointed out that many people who knew him were already making jest of him due to the fact that he does not have money to show for all his ministerial work.
Without doubt, the street pastor was frustrated beyond measure. The video of him displaying on the streets and making outrageous demands from the people he was meant to save was posted by a certain man named Ifeanyi Huge Man Orakwue on Facebook.
Alongside the video shared by the man who is an OAP in a radio station in Onitsha, there are certain words which gives more details about the identity of the evangelist. For one, it reveals that the preacher whose father is also a pastor comes from a village in Abia state.

A lot of comments have trailed this post. Several Nigerians are not sympathetic towards the plight of the young evangelist, rather, they cast blames on all the factors that might be responsible for his open display of 'madness'.
