The House on the Rock, Abuja Chapter has apologised after its presiding pastor, Uche Aigbe was seen wielding an AK47 rifle while addressing the congregation.
In a statement on Monday evening, the Church said Aigbe had always shown exemplary leadership since he became the pastor of the church in 1999.
Explaining that the pastor was trying to illustrate the message through his action, the church, however, said the gun was not loaded, adding that it did not support any form of violence.
The church noted that it would cooperate with the authorities throughout the investigation into the matter.
The statement read in part, “Without hesitation, pastor Uche has acknowledged the gravity of his actions and apologised unreservedly for them.
“As a church, House on the Rock rejects all forms of violence and we stand in the good news gospel of Jesus Christ which embraces peace and goodwill for all mankind.
“We are cooperating fully with the authorities as they carry out their investigations into the incident, and we will continue to engage internally to ensure this break in protocol does not happen again.”
