I’m wondering how many Nigerians would ever report to the authorities about the lone early morning preachers that have been terrorizing us for years? Especially Nigerians that have been left comatose from religious indoctrinations, people who would prefer to suffer in discomfort than risk the wrath of God.
I used to think it was only in Nigeria until I read an article yesterday where residents of South Yorkshire reported a white- robed religious sect to the authorities. They were accused of waking residents of a Barnsley housing estate with noisy prayers and chants every 5.30am.

In his defense the leader of the religious sect, Mr Radzokota aka Father Isaiah said:
"As we do not have a permanent place to worship in Barnsley, we sometimes carry out our early morning prayers in the wilderness.
In Africa, all our church members carry out their services in the open space, commonly called wilderness, because by praying in the wilderness we are close to nature and God."
