A fight has broken out among church congregants in a New Jersey Anglican Church, United States of America, dominated by worshipers from Nigerians, over the transfer of a new bishop.
The previous Bishop (yet to be identified) who is a Nigerian was removed and a new one, Bishop Ross, an American, was installed.
However, the development didn’t sit well with members of the church who went protesting against Ross, insisting that the church is mainly Nigerians and as such needs a Nigerian clergy to preside over them.
In a video circulating online, a congregant was overheard saying, “You are not welcome here, you’re not welcome.”
Recall that the Nigeria Anglican Church is having problems with the Church of England, which is the mother church in charge of posting Bishops, because of gay rights.
Following the conflict, the Anglican Church in Nigeria had since distanced itself from the Church of England.
