A Nigerian pastor has made a stunning claim about how God asked him to build a church on a land that is not his own.
A Christian cleric, Felix Moses, has been dragged before an Igbosere Magistrates’ Court for allegedly building on someone’s land.
He was arraigned by the Federal Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (FCIID), Alagbon, Ikoyi, Lagos on Tuesday.
According to The Nation, Moses, pastor of Capernaum Christian Ministry located at 34/36, Tijani Ashogbon Street, Bariga, was docked on a one-count charge of unlawful encroachment on a property.
Prosecuting counsel Henry Obiazi, a Superintendent, said the defendant built his church on the land without the complainant’s permission.
According to the prosecutor, Moses told the police that “God Almighty directed him to build a church on the land.”
Obiazi said the offence contravened Section 4(5) of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.
Moses pleaded not guilty.
Chief Magistrate O.O Oshin granted him N250,000 bail with one surety in the like sum.
She remanded the defendant in Ikoyi Prison till he fulfills the bail conditions.
The case continues on March 27
