Odele had tweeted that the woman’s act is harassment and public nuisance, saying it is wrong to encroach on somebody’s space in a “creepy way”.
“Preaching your religion to random strangers is harassment and frankly being a public nuisance.
“You know the uber driver was Muslim and you kept preaching Christianity to him. He is a patient man. If it were me, I’ll ask you to come down from my car and report you to uber for harassment & frankly endangering my life. It is COVID stop spraying unnecessary droplets in my car,” she tweeted.

“And then you are too self-absorbed to even recognize you were encroaching on someone’s personal space in a creepy way. Instead you come on social media to brag about it. Smh [sic].”
Reacting to her tweet, @chylife6 said, “What will you tell marketers? Do they constitute public nuisance too? They talk to strangers. They set gigs at random locations with speakers on. Smh [sic] on you all.”
@FFreinzy said: “Y’all get triggered easily especially when it comes to stuff on ‘Christianity’. Trying to sound woke but actually dense. Christianity isn’t a religion and has never been, it’s a relationship with God. And, we speaking it with a random stranger is bc we were mandated.”

“We can talk about our businesses to random strangers and even get referrals but it’s when Christ is preached that we draw the line. Got it,” @sageofages said.
“When you think you’re being woke but it’s actually the spirit of Antichrist borrowing your vessel,” @AyanfeofGod said.
“I don’t completely agree with you on this. There’s always a decent approach to whatever we do, just like a teacher passing an information that he wants to be understood to his student, like the adverts do on products and services, like a contractor do to his clients,” @oseghalepfund wrote.
“I could sell to random people, I could make business offers to random people but I can’t preach Christ to them, right? I don’t force anyone, I can even be stopped and not granted permission in the first place.He can even reject it after my message but don’t tell me not to preach,” @IAmEbukaAnochie said.
