The federal capital territory administration (FCTA) on Saturday shut down a Christ Embassy church holding a service.

The administration shut down the service for contravening the territory’s public health measures.

Mohammed Bello, minister of FCT, had restricted the number of people that could gather at a time to 20 as a measure to mitigate the spread of coronavirus.

Speaking to the congregation, Ikharo Attah, chairman, FCT ministerial task team on traffic, said he and other officials present at the church were not there to torment them.

Attah said it is expected of Christians to obey the laws of the land as it is written in the Bible, adding that the gathering was “extreme” because of the “calamity that we are all in”.

“Nobody has come to torment the house of God, we won’t do it. It was clear and we all understood clearly what the Bible – and what Paul told the church of God that worshiped in Rome,” he said.

“In Romans 13: 1 and 2 he was very explicit that all authorities that be, are ordained of the Lord and this authority bears rules that we all are governed.

“Even in Daniel 4, 17 and 25, it was clear when Daniel spoke to the king and made things clear that Jehovah reigneth in the kingdom of men and he gave this kingdom to men at periodic moments to guide the affairs of men.

“When something is wrong lets say ‘hey pastor, something is wrong’. When we go you will say ‘some men came in here to desecrate the house of God’. We ought not to be here in the first place.”

The FCT has so far recorded 14 out of 89 coronavirus cases in the country.
