An evangelist in Ejigbo area of Lagos was during the week beaten up by prostitutes for preaching near their brothel.
Evangelist Mathew of a popular church in Ejigbo almost lost his life while preaching to prostitutes within close proximity to Golden hotel in Ejigbo where the prostitutes do their business.
Eyewitnesses say trouble started when the Evangelist started preaching to the women and their male clients to forsake their sinful acts and give their life to Jesus Christ. He told them to turn to God to deliver them and receive salvation . An angry prostitute brought out a full bucket of water and poured it on the head of the evangelist.
He however did not stop preaching and the prostitutes decided to beat the hell out of the preacher .
It was gathered that he didn’t retaliate or try to escape from the mob beating and eventually fell unconscious.
Passers-by however rushed the Evangelist to the hospital where he is receiving treatment.
