Police in Lugari is holding in custody an African Divine Church Pastor after he was nabbed with 40 litres of illicit brew.
It’s alleged that following government’s directives to close churches as one of the measures to observe social distancing and curb the spread of the Coronavirus, the pastor resorted to selling chang’aa at his Munyuki home in Lumakanda location.
Working on a tip-off from members of the public, police officers from Lumakanda police station together with officials of the community policing team raided the pastor’s home where they met resistance from a team of youths allegedly hired by the pastor to guard his business.
The youths tried to engage the officers, obstructing the arrest of the pastor before they were overpowered.
The pastor together with his son was later arrested and whisked to Lumakanda police station.
