Interior CS Kithure Kindiki has hinted that Televangelist Ezekiel Odero will be charged with mass killings of his followers.
Kindiki made the remarks shortly after the arrest of pastor Ezekiel.
He was arrested in his church in Kilifi and taken to the Coast police headquarters.
The CS said Ezekiel is currently being processed for the same.
“It is notified for information of the general public that today, Thursday, 27th April 2023, Mr Ezekiel Ombok Odero, the Head of New Life Prayer Centre and Church at Mavueni within Malindi Sub-County of Kilifi County, has been arrested and is being processed to face criminal charges related to the mass killing of his followers,” Kindiki said.
He was arrested a day after facing the Directorate of Criminal Investigation officers for questioning.
Police said the move to summon him on Wednesday was prompted by the ongoing exhumation of bodies from a farm in Shakahola Forest.
The farm is linked to pastor Paul Mackenzie of Good News International Church.
