In the short video being circulated on social media, the man, clad in a back-cloth armed with big stick is seen running very fast towards the Holy Altar and diving in, where the Bishop was and his other two colleagues. Security was quick to take to action. Men in uniform and those in plain cloth quickly moved in to arrest, and whisked off the ‘attacker’.
The suspect is currently in police custody at Namirembe Police Post for interrogations.Bishop Wilberforce Kityo Luwalira of Namirembe Diocese said his attacker looked possessed and couldn’t be stopped.
“I have seen the power of darkness during my service as Bishop but the most powerful thing is that I have seen the power of God,” said Luwalira told the congregation after the incident.
He said they can’t blame security officers attached to the church since such incidents happen to even to high profile people with heavy security.
