The yet-to-be identified man was seen preaching the gospel to strangers and it attracted the attention of the police. When asked to leave by the police, he attempted to preach salvation to the officers of the law.

The preacher refused to leave when he was asked and stated that he will not be leaving as he had to tell people the truth about Jesus. The officer then threatened to arrest him and it did not deter the preacher from still trying to preach the word.

He was later whisked away by two police officers who clearly ran out of patience. The street pastor appeared to be willingly cooperating with the officers but got slightly offended when his bible was taken from him.

Meanwhile, an internet user, Philip Emmanuel, has recounted an encounter he and some other passengers in a bus had with a mobile pastor while travelling.

According to him, the pastor prayed vigorously for over two hours while waiting for the passengers to drop offering money. He said the bus took off from Egbu in Owerri and even when they got to Okija in Anambra, he was still praying but none of the passengers dropped any money.
