Members of the NKST Church, Achusa, Makurdi, the Benue State capital, gave their pastor an unexpected Valentine treatment on Sunday.
They asked him to vacate his seat and leave the church.
The church members, who were reportedly uncomfortable with the pastor’s methods, also stopped him from conducting Sunday service.
Worshippers who turned up for Sunday service were stranded as they too could get into the church premises.
When The Nation visited the church located in a new layout in Makurdi, worshippers were seen milling around the locked gate.
There was some tension as the pastor and his supporters were adamant, saying he was not going anywhere.
NKST is a predominantly Tiv church with its synod headquarters in Mkar, Gboko .
The Nation gathered that some members of the church accused the resident pastor of some strange doctrines and want him remove.
But under the NKST church rules, only the Synod in Mkar, Gboko can sanction a resident pastor.
