There was apprehension at Archangel Raphael Catholic Church, Garki, Abuja, on Sunday, July 3, when an unidentified turbaned man invaded the church premises.
According to eyewitnesses, the man who wore sunglasses and a hat that had the inscription ‘POLICE” on it, did not have a tenable explanation when he was apprehended by the church worshippers.
He was also seen wearing a faded suspected US Army- type camouflage trousers and drove a silver-coloured Peugeot 406 with an Abuja number BWR-417HF.
In a viral video, a lady who witnessed the incident said, “This is just happening here right now, a terrorist entered my church Archangel Raphael Catholic Church, Garki, Abuja, Police Barracks. He dressed up in a turban, a police face cap and dark shades. He drove to where the men were having a meeting. We were shouting for him to stop. So we raised an alarm that people should come out and stop him and they stopped him.
Upon interrogation, he said he was here to see somebody but the person he claimed he came to see said he did not know him. After much interrogation, he said he was from Abia, where in Abia?, he could not say. He proceeded to reveal his relatives were from Ethiopia. So we asked him, what are you doing dressed like this?, he couldn’t provide a reasonable answer.
He said he was going to call the Inspector General of Police. We saw some things in his car, drugs and some other items.“
