Members of Oke Iyanu CAC church in Ogijo area of Sagamu Ogun state yesterday fled for their lives when some policemen arrested their associate pastor.
Pastor Jonathan Olowonisile, and 3 other church officials were picked up during service.
The action of the policemen was part of the moves to ensure compliance with the sit-at-home order by the government.
It was gathered that worshippers had congregated in the church to observe the Easter Sunday service when policemen attached to the Ogijo division invaded the church and arrested the pastor while other members took to their heels.
The news of the arrest of the pastor and others forced other recalcitrant churches in the area to abruptly shut their doors.
One of the members of the church, who spoke on condition of anonymity said;
“What happened today is an indication that we have been under surveillance.
“Our pastor, the associate pastor and three other members were arrested.”
