Armed robbers have stormed a church in the United States, robbing the pastor and his congregation members of $400,000 in jewellery.
The pastor, Bishop Lamor Miller-Whitehead and his members were stunned by the incident which happened during a live-streamed church service on Sunday.
Whitehead was speaking at the Leaders of Tomorrow International Ministries in Canarsie, Brooklyn, when the robbery happened.
Speaking on his social media pages afterwards, the cleric said, “I didn’t know if they wanted to shoot the church up or if they were just coming for a robbery.”
Addressing comments on him having expensive jewellery, he said, “A lot of people are going to say, ‘Why are you so flashy?’ It’s my prerogative to purchase what I want to purchase if I work hard for it.”
