Archbishop Benjamin, has been Arrested and detained at the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department,Yaba, for invasion of Chinese Embassy.
Archbishop Samson Mustapha Benjamin who was arrested yesterday April 21, while protesting at the Chinese Embassy in Victoria Island, Lagos said, he only went there to express his displeasure over the ill-treatment of Nigerians in China.
Recall that few days ago, some Nigerians living in China raised an alarm of allegedly being ejected from their homes and being forced into isolation facilities. This was however resolved after the Speaker of Nigeria’s House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila intervened.
The General Overseer of Resurrection Praise Ministries International was accused of defying the lockdown order issued by President Buhari, to lead a protest he described as a “one man protest against the inhumane treatment of Nigerians and Africans at large in China”.
A video clip of what was alleged to be an invasion of the embassy was sent to Police authorities in the state, consequent upon which a team of policemen from Victoria Island division, was drafted to the scene.
As at 7.30pm, Archbishop Benjamin was still being detained at the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, SCIID, Yaba.
However, during interrogation, he was said to have denied invading the embassy with over 100 persons, maintaining that he only went there to express his displeasure over the ill-treatment of Nigerians in China.
