The Eket branch pastor of the Deeper Life Bible Church and a pastor of the United African Evangelical church, were among the pastors arrested Sunday morning by police officers from Eket Divisional police headquarters.

The Divisional Police officer, Mr Sunday Diggah who disclosed that the Pastors may be prosecuted for violating the State Government’s stay-at-home order, also disclosed that they have impounded many cars while enforcing the order.
