A 55-year-old man, Sunday ThankGod was arraigned by the Abia State Police Command for his refusal to pray and causing a public disturbance in Church.
It was gathered that Mr Thankgod neglected the opening prayer of the Bishop at the Apostolic Christian Church Mission (ACCM) at No. 34 Omuma Road, Aba and so will be arraigned before a magistrate court in Aba South Magisterial District.
A charge sheet with No: MAS/COS/2c/2023, obtained by Sahara Reporters did not specify when the trial is set.
The charge read, “That you, Sunday ThankGod, on the 16th day of April 2023 at Apostolic Christian Church Mission (A.C.C.M) at No. 34 Omuma Road Aba, in the Aba South Magisterial District did conduct yourself in a manner likely to cause a breach of peace by neglecting the Opening Prayer of the Bishop and thereby caused a public disturbance at the church and thereby committed an offense punishable under Section 249 (d) of the Criminal Code Cap. 80 Vol 3 Laws of Abia State of Nigeria, 2005.”
