Pastor Arrested For Allegedly Prophesying Against Governor Okorocha
"Touch not my anointed and do my prophet no harm" says the Bible.
But operatives of the Police Command in Imo seem not to care much about that verse of the bible as they have arrested a pastor in the Assemblies of God Church in Owerri.
Pastor Chukwuma Okezuo was arrested for allegedly giving prophecies against the state Governor, Rochas Okorocha, during a church service.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Andrew Enwerem, who paraded the cleric before newsmen on Tuesday, accused him of prophesying during last Sunday’s church service.
The pastor was alleged to have said in his prophecy that the governor was recruiting young boys in the state with the sole aim of kidnapping children between zero and 10 years for rituals.
He added that the “false prophecy” is capable of causing rancour and panic in the state.
The 40-year-old pastor, who hails from the Mbaitoli Local Government Area of the state, however, said what the police accused him of was untrue.
He said that he only asked the congregation to pray against untimely death and spiritual manipulations without mentioning the name of anybody including that of the governor.
