The attack on the pastor is attributed to his participation in cultic activities according to a police spokesperson.
Pastor Severino Lukoya of the New Jerusalem Tabernacle Church, Uganda narrowly escaped being lynched when a group of residents descended on him for giving fake prophecies.
According to the Uganda Monitor, Lukoya who parades himself as an ‘untouchable almighty god’ was on a special door-to-door ministration when the mob attacked him.
Fortunately the police was on hand to save the pastor who reportedly preaches in three different religions – the traditional worship pattern, ‘Acholi’, Islam and Christianity.
The Uganda Monitor quoted the mob saying, “He is not a true prophet. He preaches falsehood and false prophecies to us and we are tired of him.”
Speaking concerning the matter, Albert Onyango, the Agago District Police Commander said the pastor was being attacked due to the transgression of his daughter.
“Residents hate him because of the past rebellion his daughter led.
“They also believe Lukoya is a cult leader whose presence brings bad omen.
“I think it is time Lukoya realized that he is not wanted in the district.
“This is the fourth time in less than two years that people are attempting to kill him.”
The attack on fake men of God have gone on the increase in recent times.
Many of these so-called pastors have been tied to some cultic or fetish dealings which has seen them get exposed for murder and possession of human remains.
