Reopened –Embattled New Life Prayer Center and Church founder Ezekiel Odero has defied police orders barring him from reopening his church at Mavueni, Kilifi.
On Sunday May 7 morning, the embattled pastor attended his first ever church service since being released from Shanzu Police Station, two days ago.
This is despite barring orders from Coast Regional Coordinator Rhoda Onyancha who had warned him against holding prayers at the center until investigations on faithful indoctrination are over.
And making the reopening confirmation today Sunday May 7, Odero’s lawyer, Danstan Omari, confirmed that the pastor’s supporters had started arriving at their place of worship as early as 5AM on Sunday.
“The police had blocked the supporters from accessing the church. We informed the officers that they needed to produce a written and stamped document stating the orders of the closure. Since they did not have it, they left the premises and the service is continuing as we speak,” Lawyer Omari stated.
Commenting on the police directives, Lawyer Omari said verbal police utterances will never supersede written orders from the courts.
On Thursday, May 4, presiding Judge Olga Sewe certified, as urgent, Odero’s application for both the church and Tv broadcast licenses to be restored.
