The Police at Area J Command, Elemoro, Ibeju Lekki, Lagos, western Nigeria, have arrested Elijah Emmanuel Akpan, 43, the General Overseer of Mountain of New Convenant Church situated at Labasta Street, Orile Ilasan area of Lekki, Lagos,over alleged issuance of police uniform to unauthorized persons in his church.

After investigation by Sergeant Etebi Enahoro and his team, the suspect, a resident of Orile Ilasan area of Lekki, Lagos was arraigned before an Igbosere magistrates’ court, Lagos on four-count charge bordering on alleged issuance of police uniform to unauthorized persons in his church, false information and stealing.

    Who gave him the authority to issue police uniform to just church security guards? Touch not my anointed and do my prophet no harm, does this bible quotation also empower pastors/prophets misbehaving and expecting no legal action to be taken upon them?

    Good that they nabbed him in time. Who knows who would have been his victim? There are many lions in sheep’s clothing today.

    The annoying aspect is that some People will see this kind of things and still flocks the church when other Living churches out there are lacking congregation.
    People loves falsehood not truth. The love the easy way out in everything, short-cut.

    My strolling continues…

    The BIG question is “How and Where did he (Pastor), get the Uniform that is supposed to be in the custody of the Police?
