A Nigerian man, Hycent Ukwayi proposed to his girlfriend outside the church after the Sunday Mass in Calabar, the Cross River state capital.
Mr Ukwayi is said the be the Special Assistant to the Cross River Governor, on Equal Opportunity.
His friends posted photos from the public proposal on Sunday, November 29, with some poking fun at him, saying that the ”Holy Spirit finally arrested him after running away countless times.”
One Ferdinand Akwaji Ayakpo, wrote:
“If God want to catch you, there is nothing anyone can do about it. And for the Holy Spirit to arrest a man in the church is something worthy of note.
“Just as in the case of Jonah and SAUL who later became PAUL, Hycent has evaded arrest countless times but at the appointed time, God did his work and got him converted.
“Brother, may you forever remain a preacher of the gospel and winner of souls for Christ. Receive the grace to live a life worthy of your calling”
Another friend, Mathias Unimke wrote:
“Hello church members, our brother who has been running away from pumping the big question, I prayed for him as Daddy G.O and the holy spirit arrested him to ask that big question and sister said yes. Let’s congratulate them. Hallelujah!! Congratulations husband material Hycent”
