COMEDIAN ARRESTED FOR MAKING VIRAL COMEDY VIDEO OF LORD'S CHOSEN CHURCH
It appears that budding comedians, Naija’s Craziest, have been forced into submission after the General Overseer of the Lord’s Chosen Charismatic Revival Church, Lazarus Mouka, reportedly ordered their arrest. The comedians, Mc Toothpick, Laff Mayor, Mc Tutalk and Mc Samorano were arrested
by the police on Tuesday in Lagos for their production of a video that parodies members of the Lord’s Chosen Charismatic Revival Church and its General Overseer, Pastor Lazarus Muoka.
In the YouTube video tagged ‘Naija’s Craziest Episode 144‘, the skit began with a disclaimer and a caption that read, “When members of a church think that an apron is powerful enough to protect them, they will roll in the mud and confront armed robbers.”
Thereafter, a group of Christian worshipers, presumably members of the church, appeared wearing olive green aprons and singing loudly and dancing in a muddy street. One of them, a male, rolls on the ground and in a pool of muddy water.
While the scene continues to run in the background, the comedians appear on the screen, one after another and criticize members of the church for constituting a nuisance” to the public.
Also, in the video, Mc Tutalk mocked members of the church for purchasing protective apron that sells for N1000 each. According to him, if all the members, numbering 200,000, buy an apron each, the total sum realised would be N200m.
The group confirmed the arrest on their Facebook page,
