Exclusive: Police arrest comedy crew in Lagos for making satire video criticizing members of Lord's Chosen Church

Members of a comedy crew named 'Naijas Craziest' were arrested by Police in Lagos on Tuesday, because of a satire video they did criticizing members of the Lords Chosen Charistmatic Revival Church located at Ijesha in Lagos.

In the video, the comedians can be seen criticizing the Church members for rolling in mud on a public road, with a supposed 'Spiritual Bullet Proof' apron allegedly sold to them for 1,000 naira per piece.

They also took at a swipe at the General Overseer of the Church, Pastor Lazarus Muoka, saying he is selling the apron to his 200,000 members all over Nigeria and sending them out, while he's "chilling in his air-conditioned office."
Now the video which was uploaded via youtube on December 5th, 2016, has over 20,000 views. It has now gained the attention of the Church authorities, who filed a report with the police. (watch below)

 

According to a LIB source:
"The state CID Panti arrested the crew on Tuesday 10 of January, 2017. This was as a result of a report filed by Lord's Chosen Church over a comedy satire video (which has a DISCLAIMER at the beginning), criticizing its members. John Joshua aka MC Toothpick was arrested on the set of African Magic TV series, Hustle. He was lied to about a meetup for a TV show and Police men wearing plain clothes picked him up on arrival. They told him that the deputy commissioner of police wanted to have a chat with him. When he got to State Criminal Investigation Department, Panti, they played the video in question for him, and said it was a crime, that he and his crew broke the law. (The law broken was however not mentioned). John Joshua was reportedly ordered to write a statement under duress and informed that he won't be released until he provided details of the whereabouts of the other comedians in the video. He was also not allowed to call for help but only pick incoming calls.
With no other option available, he called his colleagues, Mayor Okiemute Uguseba aka Laff Mayor, Kingsley Chibisi aka MC tutalk and Kelvin aka De Governor. He lied to them that he had a show in Yaba and needed to meet a client. While Laff Mayor could not make it, Kingsley and Kelvin went, where arrested and their phones seized. They were released after paying a total of 8,000 naira and told to report to the station today, Wednesday 11th of January 2017"

LIB reached out to Mayor Okiemute aka Laff Mayor, who couldn't make it on that day, and he confirmed the incident. He however mentioned that the Police are requesting for his presence and that of another comedian, who made a guest appearance on that video. Mayor however made it clear that he will only be reporting to the station after his lawyer, Barr Sadiq Olanshile. Lateef, arrives in Lagos tomorrow.

More details to come!

An attack on freedom of speech, so it's a crime to hold religious institutions accountable, but it's acceptable to display violence towards minority groups within society.

Very soon, they will start to censor blogs, the press and people from communicating their views. This is unacceptable.

Thieving Pastors all in Nigeria. Non has any powers whether from God or from the devil, it's all psyche people, just psyche. They make you believe they possess powers but by God, they possess non. They are humans like you who just put: Pastor, Prophet, Bishop, Arch Bishop, Cleric, overseer etc to their names and coin wordings derived from the bible to dupe ignorant people. Whats worse is that these "duped people" are the very defendants for them.

Now everyone read this: http://www.vanguardngr.com/2015/06/lords-chosen-pastor-shot-dead-in-lagos/

Imagine! A pastor with Lord's Chosen, a church that claims all kinds of powers. He was even wearing the Lord's Chosen protection vest and, certainly because of it, he must have felt so secure and did not take precaution...I don't wanna say more people, ummm... Okay O'. My name Chika

For the records, any brand of Christianity that offers members charms or the like is not of God. Whether you call it holy water, chaplet, apron, handkerchief, olive oil or whatever. A lot just "donate" themselves to these churches to be deceived and duped of their income while they go about impoverished, why not study the holy bible yourselves people? My name...Chika

To all the brainwashed Lord's Chosen members, true protection comes from God and not a printed "CHOSEN" vest. The wise ones in your congregation follows your G.O, Muoka's steps and wear bullet proof vests before wearing a "CHOSEN" Vest on top.

Muoka always has body guards wherever he goes. Stop moving about deceived, with the belief that no bullet will penetrate you with "CHOSEN" vests on, that's pure balderdash. My name...Chika

The police better free them. They have the right to express themselves. If the truth hurts then the church should stop all these extremism. This only shows that the church and the leadership are very thin skin and will only provoke more people to make them the butt of their jokes. FREE THE NAIJA CRAZIEST!

Interesting Gist, well seasoned lawyers in the house can you please clarify, if there is a section of the law these comedians have violated.

I want to be properly educated on this item.

This is not a comedy show. The video was made specifically to criticize the church and this is so unprofessional of them. Therefore, the church has the right to report them to the authorities or even sue them for damages as the video clearly makes mockery of the church and the worshipers. Also, some unconfirmed claims were made in the video which they have to answer to. If you think having a camera,can upload videos and have subscribers who watch your video post allows to make any post or videos about certain individuals and organizations they represent freely without consequences, then think again. I know one of the boys in the video who lives in the same house with someone I know in Isolo, During the early years of the Lords Chosen he frequented the church with his family for prayers because he was always sick.

How can even the church use police to arrest the comedians??? where is there Christianity?? i thought the bible says forgive. and even at that when Jesus went through persecution in the bible did he call soldiers to come and arrest people?? that's how you will know fake Christians. they should go and rest. All this organizations that call themselves church.. i cant cant call you church because that's not the through meaning of church, the bible says that we the individuals are the church. and the building where people gather is what you now call church. God sees you all.

I see I state where the law says one thing and the citizens do another. Nonsense! What's their crime? Ate they not free to criticize again ? And why wasn't the crime indicated by the CID ? foolishness is when u know the right thing to do for the success of your country and u chose to dance to the music of the rich. Anyways even them preach against oppression yet they are oppressing the innocent citizens who wants to create an awareness. God will judge all of us. I sure know he is not partial and also not a respecter of any man irrespective of the mans position on earth. Unlike the foolish law enforcers that act against the same law. If the foundation is shaken what then can the righteous do ? If the law enforcement acts in contrast to the supposed law what then can the good citizens do ?

It is good that before you people begin to talk rubbish first take a serious look at the video and you will see that this has gone beyond comedy but now they are castigating the church, the so called comedians are indirectly making jest of the church. They should look for better things to do if they are out of work.

If you were the one someone used your name to do such would you be happy, let all remember the golden rule.

Prince said...

Dear LIB readers, the said comedy group went too far and direct.. Honestly at a point it was more dan comedy, dey were directly tarnishing the Man's image and generally dt of d church.. Which is nt suposed.. Let's stop being Stereotyped and look at it frm anoda angle
I rest my case

This is the only difference between Muslims and Christians. Why would one make caricature of Christianity? Muslims will kill you instantly if you even think of it! If you think your brother or sister or even parents are not doing things the right way must you expose them by making comedy of their life in public for them to be ridiculed? The earlier we get matured on the way we talk,the better for us all.

When you watch a comedy and this video in question you'd see the difference. To be honest.. This was not a comedy. It was simply a video of about 8-10 minutes of slander. The "comedians" on quote were condemning the actions of the members as well as their pastor and somewhat even judging them. The comedians didn't really do well with such a video.
Also, Nigerians should be truthful at times and should stop commenting based on sentiments. The video was not a Comedy and it shouldn't be treated as such. If you doubt me you can still watch it again, those boys were paid to spoiled the image of the church .

What these comedians did was wrong, how can you use a church name, church material and the pastor's pictor for your selfish and wicked comedy? This should serve as a warning to all these comedian who use church and men of God for comedy. Those criticising the church for arresting them, if they use your family name and your father's picture for useless comedy will you like it?

Let call a spade a spade. this comedy has gone beyond comedy. This is wickedness in the highest order. Those comedians should die in jail. Nonsense!

These comedians are looking for cheap fame. Why should they use church material and the pastor's picture for this kind of video? Some of you here are still supporting them. Very soon they will use your family name and your father's picture for comedy. In the name of cheap fame and money making. Nonsense!

Prospect Nwafor said...

This is good for them. Comedians nowadays don't know their limit. Using the church materials and even the pastor's pictures and church original content is totally not acceptable.
The video in question was born out in hates, criticism, mockering and damaging the man of God reputation and believe. You don't tarnish someone's image all because you want to get money or fame.

Now some are chanting are they not Christians again but let me tell you there are somethings you don't overlook all because you are a Christian. As a nation that has a governing law what the church authorities have done is right by reporting them to the appropriate authority off course I know the man of God is so busy with his evangelism out reach to get distracted by these small hungry comedians.

THE BIBLE SAYS, God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong.NEW LIVING TRANSLATION SAYS, God chose things the world considers foolish in order to shame those who think they are wise. And he chose things that are powerless to shame those who are powerful. NOW THE QUESTION IS, WHO IS HE THAT CONDEMNETH???

Am very disappointed that Christians these days don't respect Gods servants,if it where to be in those Bible days the wrath of God would have come upon these boys but thank God for His son Jesus for the grace people are abusing these days: cos i don't see the reason why people will pick up a stupid idea to mock a church just because of firm and money,when evil thing happens to them,they will blame an old woman in there village that she's a witch while they are the ones bewitching themselves .I believe these boys will not try it to president,they will be imprisoned for some month even years because of Christ people are abusing chance to mucked a servants of God who is greater than president or any dignitaries. Please my advise For those commenting against the church, all in the name of, I want to comment,be mendfull of what you comment,when it comes to the things of God,allow God to judge don't jump into something you don't know about,stop judging the church or man of God cos you don't know when you are speaking or working against God.Be wise and allow God to judge.shalom

Not surprised; The world 'll never stop supporting evil b'cos the wicked 'll always support wickedness, no wonder the saying "every way is a safe route for the foolish blind man without a leader who always fall into a deep ditch without remedy (a sturbon fly will continue to see a dead body as a sumptuous meal until he finds himself in the deepest part of hell (grave)). Those guys are not comedians but unprofessional blackmailers and should be treated as such and anyone who's in support of their naughtiness is not wise. That's my opinion.

Anyaele Uwakwe said...

That arrest was a little thing, they have taking more than they can chew, this is total blackmailing, mockery and insult against God's anointed and the body of Christ(The Lord's Chosen Church) I pray they should repent and ask God for mercy, that arrest could be a warning to save their souls, Even if they are hired to do this rubbish, can't they reason well, fame does not come like that, this is ridiculous, any one supporting them is an enemy of God and man, he/she is attracting God's wrath
