It was a show of shame for a popular clergy man in Awka who was arrested by the operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA.



The General Overseer of Christ Living Hope Church, Rev. Ugochukwu Emmanuel Ekwem got arrested at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, MMIA, Ikeja Lagos while on his way to a three-week crusade in Nairobi, Kenya, with 54 sticks of drugs wrapped around his body.

The youthful and popular preacher who has his church headquarters in Isuaniocha, Mgbakwu road, Awka, Awka North LGA, Anambra state and two other branches in Lagos and Abuja, was arrested on Monday 7th March, during the outward clearance of passengers on Ethiopian Airlines flight to Nairobi via Addis Ababa.

When tested, the 54 sticks proved positive to cannabis. The clergyman confessed during preliminary interview that he packed that quantity of illicit substance on his body to use during his three weeks crusade in Kenya.

The pastor was arrested when going for crusade in Kenya and he intended to sell the drugs there.
