Officers from the General Service Unit (GSU) were forced to disperse worshippers at Nairobi Central SDA following a rival clash.
According to reports, chaos erupted after two rival groups fiercely disagreed over the church leadership.
The church has since been closed until matters have been resolved.
It is however noted that the leadership wrangles at the religious institution have been brewing for some time now.
Last month, drama ensued at the Adventists church after a section of its members turned their wrath on one Pastor Jean Pierre Maywa.
Pastor Maywa is stated to have been roughed up as chaos broke out between the two rival factions inside the church.

Reports indicate that a meeting had been convened to discuss the fate of a faction that wants to split away from the church when chaos broke out with a section of the flock turning on the shepherd.
The rebel group, calling itself Nairobi Cosmopolitan Conference (NCC) recently lost a court case in which they were challenging the church’s leadership.
At the time reconciliation talks were scheduled to prevent the incident from happening again, however, it seems the talks were not effective.
