In a press release dated May 19 and signed by ASP Henry Okoye, the state's Police Public Relations Officer, the paramilitary security outfit branded the claims as "malicious" and "misleading."

The statement read in part:

"After conducting a thorough investigation into the allegations, the Command unequivocally wishes to inform the general public, particularly the residents of Imo state that the purported allegations contained in the viral publication are entirely false, malicious and misleading."

The statement established that the reports were targeted to tarnish the subject's name, which violates the state's Criminal Act.

"The spurious publication was targeted at criminally tarnishing the image and reputation of the Pastor as well as that of his ministry and this act, which has been previously championed by one Lisa Kpadowa Mba in 2018, is in serious contravention of sections 373 and 375 of the Criminal Code Act and section 24(1) of the Cybercrime (Prohibition) Act of 2015.
