THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE!! Nigerians React As Police Officer Preach On Public Bus (PHOTOS)
Jan. 15, 2019
Mixed reactions have trailed the behaviour of a preacher-police after a picture of him preaching on a commercial bus appeared online.
While a couple of Facebook users hailed his moral uprightness, droves of others condemned such behaviour saying the uniform requires him to be non-partisan in whatever shade.
"This is absolutely wrong...A policeman ought to be non-partisan and secular at least when on his uniform..How will the non-christian people in the bus feel?..They might think the Christians in the bus will get favourable protection from him since they don't share the same faith with him," said one user with the monicker Mafizo.
Nonetheless, Damilola Osinubi-Dahunsi, an Abuja-based Facebook user who shared a video footage of the officer in action, said many of the passengers appreciated the police officer who shared words of wisdom with them to abandon their evil ways.
"Here comes the new Nigeria we have long waited for, to God alone be all the glory," said Olisaemeka Okonkwo, another Facebook user who saw nothing wrong in the behaviour.
This was not the first instance of men in uniform preaching the gospel.
Recently, a policeman was seen preaching to traders at the popular Alaba international market, Lagos, bearing his Bible and a gramophone.
Whether this behaviour is appropriate or not is always subject to debate.
