    To won ba won. I see rasaq from hustle. Just get a good lawyer and sign an undertaking to cease and desist. Where one person’s rights ends is where another’s begins. Freedom is not absolute.

    This is mighty crazy. Unconstitutional policing by the members of the Lagos Police State command. Subverting the Constitutional rights of fellow Citizens (Nigerians) is very troubling to me. Inspector general of police call these educated illiterate policemen and women to order ASAP. A word is enough for the wise. I ‘ m just saying.

    I have read everything and I cannot see what their crime is. The ‘pastor’ has no case, because there was no defamation of character, the guys reported exactly what they saw. Whatever happened to freedom of speech?

    Prolly a member of the church with connect took offense and got the police ‘forcibly’ involved. I doubt the GO would be much ruffled by this.

    A much high profile case years ago refused public scrutiny until it couldnt. The church keeps a low media profile.
