Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that a top pastor in Abuja, Nigeria's capital city, was on Sunday, March 29, arrested by the Federal Capital Territory enforcement team for flouting government order over coronavirus.
The clergyman, whose name was given as Pastor U Uden, was said to have flouted the directive that all worship centres including churches and mosques be shut.
The enforcement team led by Ikharo Attah stormed the big church while service was ongoing.
Attah reminded the pastor of some biblical portions which proved that the clergyman had done wrong by not obeying the authorities.
He thereafter asked the pastor to follow the team because he had questions to answer.
In other news, popular clergyman Apostle Johnson Suleman has taken to social media with a post in which he called on the attention of medical practitioners in the country.
In a post shared on his official page on microblogging platform, Twitter, Suleman claimed that people are dying in hospitals because most medical personnel are more focused on dealing with cases of coronavirus patients.
The man of God made it clear that there were pre-existing cases before the coronavirus pandemic and noted that the actions of the doctors is absurd.
