Police officers attached to Elemoro Division, Lagos State Police, Command have re-arrested Bishop Chris Macdouglas Omosekpa.
Omosekpa was rearrested on Sunday immediately after his church service at Eputu London in Awoyaya ibeju-Lekki area of Lagos.
His rearrest was sequel to a bench warrant issued against him by Justice R.A. Oshodi of the Lagos State of Sexual and Domestic special Offences court GRA Ikeja.
it was learned that Omosekpa allegedly molested several of his church members particularly the vulnerable through false prophecy and intimidation.
Omosekpa was initially arrested by Makinde Police station Mafoluku Oshodi and charged to Ogba Magistrate court where he was granted bail under special circumstances after his lawyer claimed He had COVID-19 and Tuberculosis.
Immediately after his bail Chris Omosekpa embarked on a public campaign misinforming unsuspecting members of the public with the impression that he was set free discharged and acquitted.
According to Ebenezer M. Omejalile, Chief Operating Officer and Advocates of Children and Vulnerable Persons ACVPN, the arrest became almost impossible when he ran down to Zone 2 thinking he could get special protection but the PPRO Hauwa Idris ensured the case was returned to Makinde Police station Mafoluku Oshodi.”
“Advocates of Children and Vulnerable Persons through its legal Head drew the attention of the sitting magistrate handling the case at Ogba court who issued a bench warrant on Bishop Chris Macdouglas Omosekpa.”
Meanwhile, the case was already before Honorable Justice R.A. Oshodi of the Lagos State Domestic and Sexual Special Offences court since October 2021 has been mentioned six times unknown to ACVPN before we found out this year march 2022.
His lawyer kept misleading the court with one excuse on the other for Douglas’s unavailability.
However, the straw that broke the camel’s back was at the last sitting on the 13 of July 2022 when his Lawyer claimed Omosekpa was on life support at Akodo medical center ibeju-Lekki.
Unfortunately for his lawyer, the Judge disapprove of his plea not to be issued a Bench warrant, which was executed today.
