A Nigerian man has been spotted going to church and armed with a cutlass amidst insecurity in Nigeria and the recent attack on Christians during worship months ago.
The man who belong to the ‘white garment’ church was filmed by a relative who laughed at him intermittently as he walked ‘fearlessly’ with his weapon strapped to his body.
Similarly, following the dastardly attack by unknown gunmen at a church in Ondo which left scores of people dead, some Christians in the town have taken precautionary measures to forestall any similar occurrence in the future.
In light of this, a woman has been spotted wielding a gun during church service to protect herself hinged on the precedent.
In the photo gaining prominence online, the woman dressed in an all-white attire is seen with the gun strapped to her body. Weeks ago, a group of men suspected to be terrorists killed an unknown number of church worshippers in Ondo state, south-west Nigeria.
The armed men entered St Francis Catholic church in the town of Owo and fired at the congregation during a service to mark the holiday of Pentecost, witnesses said.
A doctor at a local hospital, quoted by the Reuters news agency, said that at least 50 bodies had been taken to two hospitals in the town.
