The Lagos State Government will today (Wednesday) arraign the General Overseer of Resurrection Praise Ministries for Africa alias Jehovah Sharp Sharp, Archbishop Samson Benjamin for violating its lockdown order.
Police spokesman Mr Bala Elkana, a Deputy Superintendent (DSP), confirmed the information to The Nation.
“They are on their way to court now,” Elkana said.
The cleric was arrested by the police on Tuesday and detained at the Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID), Yaba.
Benjamin, the police alleged, led about 100 persons to the Chinese Embassy in Victoria Island to protest the mistreatment of Nigerians in China.
According to the cleric, the Chinese were operating freely in Nigeria even though COVID-19 started in their country but have chosen to mistreat Nigerians and other blacks.
It was gathered that officials of the Embassy sent a video clip of the alleged invasion to the police, which prompted operatives from Victoria Island Division to move to the scene to effect arrest.
