- A man has taken a reactive action to buy off a church's property, sending them packing in the process
- The purchase which was made in February was as a result of the disturbance their 'noise' created for residents in that area
- The buyer was said to have appealed to the church to reduce it to no avail
A yet-to-be-identified man has sent a church packing and needing another location after he bought their property.
The said man, according to a Twitter user @MrOdanz, bought the church's property because their constant noise disturbed residents, particularly him, in the area.
@MrOdanz, who narrated what happened, said the man had made the purchase as all attempts at getting the church the minimize their 'noise' proved abortive.

The purchase which was made in February was possible as the church occupied the land on a rental basis. The man reportedly bought it off from the original owner of the land.
@MrOdanz account of the story involving the undisclosed church goes thus:
"There used to be a church located somewhere across my street that torment residents with noise/prayers.The man living on the other side of their fence bought their property last month and evicted them.This was after several efforts to get them to reduce their noise.God is good.
"Was wondering why everywhere was quiet today. Apparently the eviction notice has expired and they'd packed out.
"They can take the gospel of Jesus Christ to Nyanya and Mararaba where it is really needed. Now Sundays can be totally peaceful over here."
@MrOdanz's tweets sparked a chain of reactions as some Nigerians took a swipe at the man, others said they are still having their fair shares of noise pollution in their areas and cited some scenarios.

"Where I currently reside, there are 4 mosques and 3 churches around me. Services starts in 1 of those churches at 5am daily."
"Something are left unsaid. I wish that man comes back after 10 years and tell you his stories after buying the property and evicting the church. Please check on him about or b4 10 years if the church knows their onus."
"In most states there is law against noise pollution! People are afraid of complaining bcos of religion brainwashed, authorities will do nothing because curse from religious people. In Saudi Arabia,u will have call to prayer which is less than 2minutes. No more!"
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that an Anglican church had taken another church to court, describing them as a sect.
In a meeting where registrars and legal officers of the Anglican church were gathered to deliberate on ways of moving the church forward, Reverend Okoh stated the activities of the so-called ‘Orthodox Anglican Church’ contravene the rules of the Anglican Communion.
He also asked legal experts in the church to contribute their quota in creating stability in the church.
