Chairman of the task force, Ikharo Attah, expressed disappointment with the clerics for denying the large group of worshippers.

He said “So no one among you agrees that anyone came to worship with them even when they turned out in large numbers.

“One of you even went ahead to deny being a pastor and that is very disappointing,” he added.

He further warned them against holding worship service in defiant of the presidential directive.

However, the clerics were arraigned before the Mobile court presided by Magistrate Idayat Akonni and fined N5,000 each in addition to three hours community service.
