A group of sex workers reportedly beat an evangelist to coma after he took his evangelism to their brothel in Lagos.
According to an eyewitness account, trouble started for the 36-year-old man of God when he stood at a close range to Golden hotel, Ejigbo, and began preaching to the women and their male clients to forsake their sinful ways and turn to God for deliverance and salvation.
Evangelist Mathew of a well-liked church in Ejigbo, decided to hold out the good Biblical injuction that says: “Therefore, go and preach to all or any nations, baptizing them within the name of the daddy and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost, and teaching them to obey everything I even have commanded you”, little did he know that some aggrieved sex workers would descend on him
It was gathered that the evangelist had been warned severally in the past by the prostitutes to keep off their premises when he is preaching.
An Eyewitness, Theresa Okwudili said, “As he was still trying to comprehend what was going on, another prostitute menacingly advanced towards him and started pushing him away. He was almost pushed to the gutter if not for the timely intervention of passers-by.”
Another eyewitness, Uchenna Kingsley whose residence was adjacent to the brothel stated thus:
“That was not the first day he was preaching at that place. But he didn’t use to get so close to the brothel premises as he did on this occasion. To me, I believe he overstepped his boundary because he knew the place was an unholy zone; he should have threaded more carefully”.
