Pastor filmed harassing ladies over their dressing and threatening them with hell while doing street evangelism (video)

A woman has shared a video showing the moment a pastor harassed her and her friend and threatened them with hellfire over the way they were dressed.

The women said they were around Ozone, while walking to Yaba, when the man walked up to them and started harassing them.

Sharing a video of the pastor, Chiderah wrote: "So I and my friend were walking to the market and this man kept harassing us in broad daylight saying he’s a preacher and our sunshades won’t help us in hell. Mountain of fire pastors hope y’all can find this person and act accordingly. Kindly tag relevant authorities please."

Chiderah's friend added: "So, it was I and @chi_derah that were walking to Yaba & somewhere around Ozone, this guy just walks to our side and says 'repent or you will go to hell, these sun shades you're wearing won't help you in hell.' At first, I didn't even grasp what he said until he said it again but this timed louder than before.

"He kept pointing at us and saying we like things the world & our dressing will take us to hell. I'm literally wearing joggers and a t-shirt with a tied scarf on my head and @chi_derah is wearing a long-sleeved."

You have failed us- Northern elders tell President Buhari while lamenting the high rate of insecurity in the North

The Northern Elders Forum (NEF) has issued a statement criticizing Buhari for failing to tackle insecurity in Northern Nigeria.

In a statement released on Sunday, Ango Abdullahi, convener of the forum, said the issue of insecurity in the north is getting worse by the day.

He added that the constant attacks by bandits and Boko Haram insurgents are indications that the Buhari administration "has failed woefully" in keeping citizens safe.

The statement reads: "Northern Elders Forum (NEF) is alarmed at the rising insecurity of communities and their properties in the North. Recent escalation of attacks by bandits, rustlers and insurgents leave the only conclusion that the people of the North are now completely at the mercy of armed gangs who roam towns and villages at will, wreaking havoc.

"It would appear that the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari and governors have lost control over the imperatives of protecting people of the North, a constitutional duty that they swore to uphold.

"The situation is getting worse literally by the day as bandits and insurgents appear to sense a huge vacuum in political will and capacity which they exploit with disastrous consequences on communities and individuals."

Abdullahi said the north has never experienced this level of insecurity, accusing Buhari of issuing threats and promises that have no effect.

"As a responsible body, the forum has joined millions of others in prayers and in giving advice and encouragement to all authorities that have responsibility to protect our communities," he said.

"It is now time to say, enough is enough. Our people are known for their patience and respect for constituted authorities, but all governments must be aware by now that all Northerners have been pushed to the wall.

"The forum is aware that some citizens are contemplating peaceful protests, which are their constitutional rights, to draw attention of President Buhari and all levels of authority to the plight of people of the North.

"The forum urges all citizens to conduct themselves in peaceful and responsible manner, and it urges governments to respect the rights of citizens to express their opinions peacefully."

Abdulahi added that the NEF is consulting with other groups and organisations that share its goals in order to come up with demands from the government over the "unremitting assault" on the lives and livelihood of northerners.

The statement adds: "The Forum reminds President Muhammadu Buhari that provision of security and pursuit of economic welfare of citizens are the only two constitutional responsibilities of the state which all leaders must achieve.

"Our current circumstances in the North clearly demonstrate that President Buhari’s administration has woefully failed to achieve either. This is unacceptable.

"We demand an immediate and comprehensive improvement of our security in the North. We are tired of excuses and verbal threats which criminals laugh at, and our fellow citizens see as a clear failure of leadership which they see as part of them. Enough is enough."
