The Lagos Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi, has arrested and paraded a pastor, Chris Mordi, because he alleged the Catholic Women Organisation, CWO, and the Catholic Knights are occult groups. Imohimi told journalists that Mordi published the same allegations in a pamphlet and was planning to hold a crusade. The police boss said Mordi’s action was likely to breach public peace, vowing to press charges against the pastor.
“His action is likely to cause breach of public peace and an insult to religion; it contravenes Sections 168 and 124 of the Criminal Laws of Lagos State 2015,” said the CP.
Mordi, who is the pastor of Miracle of Fire Ministry, located at Ado Road, Langbasa, said defended his action.
" I'm trying to win souls to God, I don't intend to speak against anyone and what I mean by occultic is a group of people that believe in a course," he told journalists at the Lagos Police Command on Monday.
Imohimi said the Command is investigating the case.
