Security has been beefed up around the premises of Rapture Proclaimer Evangelical Church of God (RAPEC) in Iyana Ipaja area of Lagos.
The church, founded by Evang. Funmilayo Adebayo, nicknamed Mummy GO, has witnessed influx of visitors, strangers, journalists who want to catch a glimpse of her preaching and the church’s activities.
In a new development, the church has stationed some church officials tagged as ‘holy police’ at different points leading to the estate, to monitor new faces and prevent ‘nosy’ strangers from gaining access into the church.
The ‘holy police’ have been tasked to ensure that videos, photos are not allowed.
They temporarily seized phones and deleted photos and videos of those caught in the act.
Also at the main entrance of the church, all phones are required to be turned off before gaining entry.
The church explained that phones are distractions to the angels of God.
The holy police have also been mandated to ensure strict compliance with the church’s regulation including covering one’s hair, prohibition of jeans and make-ups.
Mummy GO has been making waves on social media due to her controversial sermons.
But last week, she said that many videos about her sermons saying people will go to hell have been edited and manipulated.
Since videos of her preaching went viral, Mummy GO has carefully stayed away from recent church activities.
The cleric revealed during the interview that her messages have made her receive death threats from other pastors and people she doesn’t know.
She said guns have been pointed at her and she has been pursued and spied on by people she doesn’t know, owing to her messages.
The evangelist said after receiving these threats and she did not back down, these set of people came to social media to begin all the blackmail.
