He posted a photo of the clergyman with the caption,

“Here he is, an upcoming Pastorpreneur who calls himself “Pastor Courage”, he sings online.

I guess he has a lot of “tithes” in his purse to make it go round at the police HQ.

He dey Abuja.

Shey police said make we de help them with investigation?

Upon seeing the pastor, PRO Muyiwa stated that it was inappropriate for the policeman to open the door for him. He also mentioned that the policeman would be investigated.
