There was chaos at the Seventh Day Adventist church, in Nairobi, on Saturday, after a faction of aggrieved members stormed the church to beat up the Head Pastor, Jean Pierre-Maywa, Igbere TV reports.
Igbere TV gathered that the fight occurred when some senior members alongside the pastor, gathered to discuss the fate of the faction known as Nairobi Cosmopolitan Conference (NCC), that wants to split from the church.
Prior to the fight, Igbere TV learnt that the NCC had lost a court case it instituted to challenge the church’s leadership.
The reconciliation meeting started off with shout matches which led to a fight minutes later.
In a video obtained by Igbere TV, some congregants were spotted shouting while others took to the altar to defend the pastor from further assault.
The meeting was called off after the police stormed the church and restored peace by using tear gas canister.
