Edgal Imohimi, the Commissioner of Police in the state, disclosed this to newsmen on Monday.

He noted that the suspect was arrested on May 5 at Ado Road, Langbasa area of Ajah in Lagos.

According to him, the Pastor was arrested allegedly while in possession of an inciting publication titled: “Beware of Catholic Women Organisation (CWO) and Knights of the Catholic for they are occultic.”

Edgal said the pastor had invited his church members for a programme where he was to make a public pronouncement on the issue before the publications were intercepted on Monday.

“This is a case of insult to religion and propagation of hate speech which contravene Sections 124 and 168 of the Criminal Laws of Lagos State 2015.

“This should be a lesson to be imbibed by all religious leaders. We must encourage and preach religious tolerance,” he said.

The commissioner, however assured that the clergyman would be charged to court for alleged hate speech and religious intolerance.
