Social Distancing: Police Arrest 3 Lagos Pastors

The Lagos State Police Command on Monday said that three pastors were arrested on Sunday for allegedly conducting church services in deviance to the Lagos State Government’s order.

Deputy Commissioner of Police Mohammed Ali in charge of Operations, Lagos Command, confirmed the arrest of the pastors . He, however, said that all three were released after cautioning.

Ali said that one of the pastors arrested is from one of the Pentecostal Churches.

He said that the pastors were not detained but warned  to comply with the government’s directive to prevent further spread of coronavirus.

The government said that it was part of its efforts to curb the spread of COVID-19 in the state.

He said, “We did not hold our weekly prayers in the mosque at the police headquarters because we had to comply with the directive of the Lagos State Government.

“I also implore churches and other religious organisations to follow suit,” he said.

Ali said that the operations to ensure the public complies with the state government’s directive would be a continuous one.

He warned that any religious leaders caught disobeying the directive of the state government would face the consequences.

LASG last week through a directive put a hold on social gatherings of people above 50 in number; including church services and mosque meetings
