One Nashville pastor has no doubt in God’s power after he successfully tackled a gunman as he marched toward the altar at the front of the church’s sanctuary.
On Sunday, Ezekiel Ndikumana, the heroic pastor of Nashville Light Mission Pentecostal Church, lunged toward 26-year-old gunman Dezire Baganda after Baganda walked up to the altar and told everyone at the worship service to get up, according to the Metro Nashville Police Department.
“He wanted to kill,” Ndikumana told local news outlet WKRN-TV, the pastor’s comments being translated by choir member Nzojibugami Noe. “That’s what first came to my mind. … He was standing in the front of almost everybody. No one was behind him yet, so he could have done anything.”
