A cleric has narrated how he was stripped and robbed by gunmen while he was travelling.
Paul Hanson, a Pentecostal Archbishop and Presiding Officer of Unifaith Living Church Incorporated, was driving from Akwa Ibom State to Anambra State to consecrate a Bishop-elect named Norman Okeorimili when he was attacked.
Speaking to journalists Sunday, Dec. 11, during the consecration ceremony of the bishop-elect at Ogidi, Idemili North Local Government Area of Anambra State, he explained that the incident happened at Akata Market Square, Orlu, Imo State, on Sunday at 2pm.
He said his car, regalia, rank badge, money, six phones, among other belongings, were taken away by the gunmen.
He said: “This incident happened at Akata, Orlu market square, in Imo State, while I was coming from Akwa Ibom State, to consecrate the Bishop-elect of our church, Norman Okeorimili, in Ogidi.
“I was stripped; they left me with a pant, my car and all in it removed. They included six phones that included those of my driver, money, regalia, badge rank, among others.
“It was somebody I don’t know that brought his car to help me. He helped me to the Police Area Commander and from there I called my Divisional Police Officer in Akwa Ibom and told him what happened. The attack on me didn’t stop me from consecrating Norman Okeorimili.”
