Brooklyn Bishop robbed at gunpoint while on the pulpit delivering sermon (Video)

A Brooklyn Bishop named Lamour Whitehead was robbed at gunpoint in the middle of a sermon on Sunday, July 24, and it was all caught on video.

The service was being livestreamed when, suddenly, the Bishop raised his hands in surrender and lay on the ground as members are heard screaming.

The church’s livestream shows the gun being held on the pastor.

The Bishop later gave an update.

He said he was five to 10 minutes into preaching Sunday morning on Ramsen Avenue in Canarsie, Brooklyn, when he saw the door in the back of the room kick open and three to four men walked in with guns.

Whitehead, of Leaders of Tomorrow International Ministries, said: “I said, ‘Alright, alright, alright,’ pretty much stating that I’m not going to do anything because I know you’re coming for me. You’re coming straight to me. I don’t want my parishioners hurt. I’ve got women and children there.

“As I got down, one went to my wife and took all her jewelry and had the gun in front of my 8-month-old baby’s face. Took off my bishop’s ring, my wedding band and took off my bishop’s chain, and then I had chains underneath my robe and he started tapping my neck to see if anything else. So that means they knew. They watched and they knew that I have other jewelry.”

“They had guns on my deacons that was at the door,” Whitehead added.

He also said that what viewers don’t see on camera are around 100 congregants who were in the room. Men, women and children dropped to the floor in silence.

“My church is traumatized. The women and children are still crying. Babies are still crying,” said Whitehead.

According to police, the men took off in a white Mercedes.

Whitehead said cops have a license plate and witnesses saw the men change clothes outside.

“These men, they need to turn themselves in,” Whitehead said. “I forgive you and I’m praying for you, and I hope that God deliver you from the mindset of who you are at this time.”

Whitehead believes his family was targeted because of the publicity he received when he helped turn in the suspect wanted in the fatal subway shooting of 48-year-old Daniel Enriquez in May.

“I turned him in, but the media called me ‘the bling, bling bishop.’ They had my Rolls-Royce caw all over everywhere and I feel that that played a part in this,” said Whitehead. “I think all pastors should be able to get permits for pistols.”

The NYPD is investigating and Whitehead said Mayor Eric Adams and top police brass have called him pledging support to find the suspects.

Meanwhile, Twitter users have taken to the platform to ask why the Bishop had on so much expensive jewelry while preaching, Some blamed his flamboyance for the attack.

This man here was caught raping a 12yr old mentally unstable girl, a daughter of his close neighbour. The 42yr randy old man gave his name as DonChris John from Onunweke Inyere.

The little girl was said to have been sent on errand by his father when Mr John intercepted, induced and raped her. It was the wailing of the girl that attracted neighbours who rushed to John’s house and shockingly caught him in the act.

The neighbours successfully disentangled the victim from her rapist and immediately dialed the Human Rights Defenders (HURIDE) after they had arranged with Ebubeagu to guard him from escaping. The call came some minutes before 5pm but HURIDE got there a few minutes before 6pm. It was above an hour drive.

The alleged rapist, Mr Don Christian John admittedly confessed to HURIDE;

“I saw one small girl going somewhere, a daughter of (name withheld); I called her to come and help me peel cassava. While she was helping me peel my cassava, she told me she was hungry. As I went inside to bring the food, she followed me to eat and she followed me. She said to me that after eating the food we will do something (have sex) and I accepted. When I pressed her breast,she started shouting. I actually inserted my pe*nis, but it did not enter very well” before passers-by besieged my house.” he said.

Meanwhile, HURIDE, with the help of some Village leaders and Ebubeagu security men, ensured the suspect was taken to a nearby Achiagu police station from where he will be transferred appropriately for onward trials. The girl is being brought to Abakaliki for medical screenings, possible treatments and proper counseling.
