A Church Pastor felt the wrath of a mob of angry South African residents who assaulted him during a violent protest against Nigerians selling drugs and prostituting.
During a violent protest on Saturday‚ South African angry mob descended and assaulted a Nigerian SA-based Church minister in an attack they claim is against Nigerians selling drugs and prostituting their South African children.
The angry mob which also included community members drinking beer‚ entered Celestial Church of Christ in Atteridgeville, in an attempt to search the church for drugs and any illegal activity.
The church’s prophet‚ Samson Sangojinmi‚ was immediately called. When he arrived in his Mercedes Benz he was assaulted by the mob‚ leaving his white robe bloodied before his congregation managed to drag him inside.

By then about 20 police officers had arrived and fired a stun grenade to disperse the crowd. However, paramedics have treated Sangojinmi but the man of God said he was hurt that people thought he would sell drugs.
Sangojinmi said: “We help many people in this church‚ when they want food or a place to stay we help them. It’s sad to see people attacking me even when I’m trying to talk to them”.
One woman‚ who refused to be named‚ said she had witnessed children in school uniform entering several of the houses they had searched.
“Some of the girls we found in the houses were high‚ wearing short outfits‚ who’ve ended up never leaving because they owed these Nigerians too much money. Enough is enough‚ we can’t trust the police anymore because they never do anything to help us‚” she said.
