Members of the congregation had allegedly sent a letter of concern to the Central Conference of the church in Taraba State requesting that an investigation be conducted into the matter.
The Central Conference, however, sent another pastor to lead the church without investigating Andrew's conduct, leading to the man still occupying church property.
It has been alleged that Andrew and a small group of unknown people has commenced a service within the church precinct when they were chased from the premises.
Officials from the Makinde Police Division were said to have intervened in the incident after it was reported at the station.
