A video of a Nigerian police officer preaching the gospel to passers-by at a local market has surfaced online and gone viral.


In the less than two-minute footage shared by one Philip Ojealao, the officer is seen urging people to shun their sinful ways and return to God.


Citing a portion of the Bible, the policeman said those who craved prosperity and other good things of life cannot achieve them on their own.


“…that’s why the Bible said…’ I wish above all things, that you may prosper.’ Listen and listen to me, if you want prosperity, you must give your life to Jesus Christ,” he could be heard saying.


 “You must abandon your way. The Bible says ‘unless a man becomes born again, he cannot enter into the Kingdom of God.”


The officer also said having a good relationship with God is integral to man’s quest for dealing with life’s inherent changes.


According to him, people cannot continue to dwell in their sinful ways and expect God’s blessings.


 “You must have a good relationship with God if you want his hand to rest upon you if you want the hand of God to deliver you and give you safety…there is nothing between light and darkness,” he added.
