Despite the alleged sealing of  the headquarters of The Lord’s Chosen and Charismatic Revival Church, in Ijesha, on Oshodi Apapa Expressway by the government, Sunday worship and other activities of the church held.

The Lagos State Government, yesterday, said the church was able to hold Sunday worship and other activities because of a moratorium granted to the church for special programmes.

Explaining further, Commissioner for the Environment, Tunji Bello, said the moratorium which followed an application by the church authorities, expired yesterday.

Vanguard Newspapers reports:

He insisted that the church was closed down to prevent imminent outbreak of killer diseases in the area and the state at large as well as serve as deterrent to others.

It will be recalled that officials of the state Ministry of the Environment last week, sealed the headquarters of the church over alleged gross environmental abuse and erection of structures on Odo Asimawu Drainage Channel, System 6c.
