Prophet Esaïe Dekpo was imprisoned in Lomé civil prison on Friday. The information is confirmed by his relatives, however the charges against the man of God remain unknown.
Since September 14, Prophet Esaïe Dekpo was being questioned by the public prosecutor about his revelation regarding the official results of the February 2020 presidential election.
« It was my son Gabriel that I chose to lead the Togolese people to the promised land. All those who know that he is the real winner and who play their card for the maintenance of the regime will be struck down by the wrath of God,» he told reporters.
A few weeks after this statement, Pastor Dekpo was summoned by Central Criminal Investigation and Investigation Service (SCRIC) of the National Gendarmerie. After hours of questioning, the evangelist was brought before the public prosecutor.
The man was initially accused of having spoken out on the results of the presidential election when the official authorities have already declared the winner, who has also been sworn in for his new term.
No further explanation about the grievances against this man of God has been officially announced.
