However, Mrs. Nagbe following her release vowed to carry on her preaching, stressing, “I can’t stop. I’m trusting God…Because I can’t help it,” she told a local radio station on its live program.

Mrs. Nagbe moved to Lisbon from Liberia for a better life and now feels disillusioned.

Police said the volume of her voice was causing a nuisance, but Mrs. Nagbe said she will carry on as before, because she can’t help it

The police remain adamant that she was causing a nuisance, with Police Chief Jeanette Persons stating that the problem wasn’t the praying, but the volume of her voice.

She said: ‘I mean, we all need prayers and great she's out there praying for all of us, but it's just the volume of her voice.’

Chief Persons added that Mrs. Nagbe would linger outside people’s homes shouting.

Pastor Juwle Nagbe said he was upset that his wife was being made to look like a bad person and urged officials to treat her with respect.
