A pastor in Kenya has told his female congregation not to wear underwear when they attend his church "so God can enter their bodies easier".

Rev Njohi, of the Lord's Propeller Redemption Church in Nairobi, has reportedly banned women from wearing underwear during his services so people can be "free in body and spirit" in order to receive Christ, according to the Kenyan Daily Post.

Njohi is also said to have warned his women of the "dire consequences" if they did not follow his orders. He is believed not to have given the male members of the congregation the same advice.

The women were reported to have adhered to the new rule and attended the Church's following service without any undergarments. They were even advised to check their daughters were not wearing anything under their outer clothes.

The church is located in Dandora, an eastern suburb of Nairobi.
