A Nigerian woman has been taken to court for engaging in a very strange act.
Moji Aderibigbe, 39, allegedly shocked fellow worshipers after she stripped naked inside church and urinated on the altar.
She appeared at the Yaba Magistrate’s Court in Yaba in Lagos Nigeria on Saturday for insult on religion and disorderly conduct.
Aderibigbe, a petty trader who lives at Pedro Area of Lagos allegedly committed the crime at Firebrand Power Ministry, Lagos Nigeria.
During first court hearing at the weekend, Police prosecutor, Sergeant Modupe Olaluwoye, said that Moji Aderibigbe committed the offence at 8 p.m. on May 13, at No. 49, Onabola St., Ladi-lak area of Bariga, Lagos.
The prosecutor told the court that the Church pastor, Francis Osibowale, caught the defendant’s 15-year-old son vandalizing church property. She said:
“My Lord, when Aderibigbe was told that the pastor had taken her son to the station, she took off her clothes inside the church building.
“She also climbed the altar and began to urinate,” she said.
The offence contravened the provisions of sections 124 and 168 (a) of the Criminal Laws of Lagos state, 2011, the prosecutor, Osibowale told court.
The defendant pleaded not guilty to the charges.
According to Nigerian law, insult to religion carries two years jail sentence while disorderly conduct stipulates three months upon conviction, both with options of fine.
The Chief Magistrate, Mrs. Oluwatoyin Oghere, admitted the defendant to bail in the amount of N50,000 ($138) with two sureties in like sum. She ordered that the sureties must be gainfully employed and must show evidence of three years tax payment to the Lagos state government.
The case was adjourned to May 22 for mention.
