Bishop Benjamin was alleged to have led about 100 persons to the Chinese Embassy in Victoria Island to protest against the inhumane treatment of Nigerians and Africans at large in China.

The cleric protested that the Chinese were operating freely in Nigeria despite that COVID-19 started in their country, but have chosen to maltreat Nigerians and other blacks in China.

It was gathered that officials of the embassy sent a video clip of the alleged invasion to the police which prompted operatives from Victoria Island Division to move to the scene to effect the arrest.

A police source who spoke on anonymity said the cleric was being detained at the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, (SCIID), Yaba and may be arraigned in court on Wednesday.

However, during interrogation, he was said to have denied invading the embassy with over 100 persons, maintaining that he only went there to express his displeasure over the ill-treatment of Nigerians in China.

Below is the moment he was being confronted by police:
