The 41-year-old pastor told Daily Sun he suffered gunshot wounds and had to be rushed to hospital for medical treatment.

“I’m still confused about what had happened. Why was I shot because it was not robbery?” Pastor Striker asked.

“They didn’t take anything. I’m still asking myself who wants to kill a man of God. They shot at the driver’s door. It seemed they wanted to kill me. Fortunately, as much I’m wounded, I’m not critical.”

He said he won’t be intimidated by criminals.

The pastor thanked God that he survived the shooting and said he’ll continue preaching the word.

“I’ll keep praying and continue using the same church without intimidation. I’m a man of God, and there no weapon set against men shall prosper,” he said.
