A pastor, Peter Michonza, of New Jerusalem Deliverance Ministry, Okene, Kogi State, has been arrested by security agents on issues concerning unethical practices.
The media aide of Okene LGA Chairman, Abdulmumin Abubakar, confirmed his arrest on Wednesday to newsmen, saying the Chairman, Hon Abduraraq Muhammad, was the one who ordered the security agents to arrest and investigate his activities.
The arrest of Pastor Michonza may not be unconnected with a video clip on social media where the clergyman is seen selling “bulletproof water”.
Pastor Michonza’s church, located in the Ageva area of Okene, is also alleged to be running a labour ward for pregnant women.
A resident of Ageva said Peter Michonza was a popular musician in the suburb, but that he suddenly started a gospel ministry; admitting people for deliverance.
