A Nigerian couple have been fined after they were caught having sex in church by the local pastor.
According to the Daily Metro, Pastor Gbenga Akhiomu demanded that 30-year-old Tolu Akintepe and his 28-year-old wife Bunmi pay £100 in damages for desecrating the altar at the Pentecostal church in the Lagos suburb of Ikeja.
He also asked the pair to clean the altar and pray to God for forgiveness.
Tolu told judge Ifeanyinwa Okenwa: "My wife was always saying she wanted me to spice up our sex life in an unusual way.
"I thought it would be thrilling if we did it in the church, having the big guy upstairs watching us. I thought it was a little adventurous. I told my wife, and she loved the idea."
The judge ordered the couple to pay the £100 compensation and have more respect for religious institutions. They also volunteered to clean the church for a week.
