A Christian preacher is reportedly fighting for his life after he was beaten into a coma when condoms fell out of his Bible on a bus trip in Nigeria.
According to the Daily Post, the bus preacher, whose name was not published, was nearly lynched Saturday morning at Toyota Bus stop, in front of the well-known Ladipo Spare Parts Market in the Mushin region of Lagos, Nigeria.
The report indicated the preacher “was dragged out of the commercial bus and beaten into a pulp before he was rescued by some policemen.”
The pastor had commenced his journey in Apapa and proceeded to preach to the riders aboard the bus, uttering statements such as, “If you wear trouser you’ll go to hell! The devil invented make-up! Weave-on is from marine kingdom! If you have pre-marital sex you will burn in hell and your skin will peel!”
Some of those on the bus were reportedly so moved, they started falling under the anointing.
John Mbakogu, a witness on his way to his shop at Ladipo, told the paper, “People were just falling as he was laying hands. One man almost fell out of the bus under the influence of the Spirit. It was amazing until he raised his hands to cast the demons out of one girl, and two Durex condoms fell out.”
“The angry men in the bus who had been having pangs of guilt due to the pastor’s preaching about sex suddenly got really angry and pounced on him, who all of a sudden started shouting, I also preach safe sex! Safe sex is good!” he continued.
The Post reports police had to be called to the scene to save the pastor’s life.
Two arrests were said to be made, and the condoms were retained as evidence.
