- ex-Police officers who turned up for Prophet Owour's crusade have been summoned

- Owuor's entrance to the crusade was highly secured by plain cloth security personel as well as uniformed police officer

- It is believed the ex-police officer were paid by the man of God to provide security

At least 10 former police officers have been summoned to report to police headquarters to explain why they turned up to prophet Owuor's prayer meeting held in Nairobi on Saturday, July 7, and Sunday, July 8.

TUKO.co.ke understands Nairobi police commandant Joseph Ole Toto on Thursday, July 12 confirmed their summoning saying the men in black were former police and military officers.

However, he defended the televangelist's tight security saying there was nothing wrong with it as hundreds of thousand of worshipers were expected to attend.

Unconfirmed reports indicate the highly trained police officers were either paid by the prophet or were doing charity work.

Police officers who were videoed announcing Owuor's highly anticipated crusade in full uniform have also been put on notice and could face disciplinary action.

The tight security witnessed during his miracle-performing crusade irked many Kenyans who took to social media to condemn him.

The prayer meetings held in Nairobi by the Repentance and Holiness ministry raised mixed reactions with some condemning it and others supporting it.

Among those who expressed displeasure was the atheist society of Kenya who called on the government to arrest Awori claiming he is blackmailing Kenyans.

Prior report by TUKO.co.ke indicated , blogger Abraham Mutai was forced to record a statement with police after getting threats from people he believed were followers of Owuor after he criticised him.

The self proclaimed prophet has over the last decade gained popularity across the globe, a move that has seen many people think he is an illuminati member.

The long bearded man is beloved to have taken over 3 decades without cutting his beards.
