A Nigerian policeman found in a local market on Tuesday, February 16, surprised passers-by when he began preaching in uniform.
The young officer was preaching salvation through Christ Jesus as the source of true prosperity, safety, and wealth, The Cable reports.
He proclaimed that unless people come to Christ and abandon their evil ways, they cannot experience victory.
Speaking with a microphone, the gallant-looking policeman declared that whoever is a follower of God must depart from all sorts of evil.
He quoted from the Bible book of John 3:3 and 2 Timothy 2: 19-21.
"Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
"Nevertheless, the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, let everyone that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity."
Naturally, the boldness of the policeman caused a stir on social media as many encouraged him while others felt he should not have preached in uniform, even going as far as saying it's all a charade.
See reactions on Twitter:
"As a Christian, I am very proud of him! GOD elevate him. He has my respect!"
