Read What Is Happening To Persons Who Accused Warri Bishop Of Sponsoring Niger Delta Avengers
The Delta State Police Command on Thursday arraigned two suspects for false information when they had claimed that a Bishop of a new generation church in Warri was sponsoring the Niger Delta Avengers.
The Punch had on Wednesday exclusively reported that the bishop who is the founder the New Salvation Church of Christ in Igbodi area of Warri, Bishop Sunny Jero, was being interrogated by police detectives from the Warri area command over an allegation linking the pastor with the militant group.
The report generated uproar leading to the arrest of the petitioners for false accusation against the man of God.
They were arraigned on a one-count charge of false accusation, an offence punishable under Section 125 of the Criminal Code Cap c21 of Delta State.
Also, a statement issued on Thursday by the Police Public Relations Officer of the Delta State Command, SP Celestina Kalu, exonerated the pastor from the allegation after his house and church were searched by security operatives and nothing was found.
