The elderly Christian street preacher who was arrested for allegedly ‘disturbing the peace’ with his Christian message has said police took him to an unfamiliar location and left him there without means of getting home.
According to Christian Concern, “Our legal team have now spoken to street preacher Olu who was arrested at Southgate tube station on Saturday. After being unnecessarily arrested, he was dropped off in an unfamiliar suburb without enough money to get home.”
Metropolitan Police reportedly told Premier that an arrest was made “to prevent a breach of the peace.”
“The man was then de-arrested and no further action was necessary,” they said. The Met Police also claimed to have walked the man approximately 200 metres from the point of arrest, de-arrested and shown to a nearby bus stop.”
A member of the public then paid for the man’s transportation, which he used to travel back to Southgate tube station to continue preaching the good news.
