Men of Imo State Police Command have nabbed a group going by the name Valiant Purity in Owerri on January 26, 2015:
The group who started their raid along Wetheral road Owerri went about flogging ladies who are putting on trousers saying that God told them to do so.
After injuring two ladies at MCC junction, the attention of the officers controlling the traffic was called on.
On nabbing one of them, the others flee along to Cherubim Junction where they continued their raid.
While speaking, the member who was in police net said they were directed by God to stop women from wearing trousers in the country.
He added that they had written the Federal Government informing them of their plans which was approved. He did not say anything about police approval or present any document that would justify their actions.
Meanwhile the men were forcefully giving flyers to the ladies they had flogged, and the flyer has one Prophet Abraham Isaac Ogbuta as the head of the organization.
A part of the flyer says ‘my direction as God “these young men Valiant Purity will have their whips, for sake of fear while Nigerians forces arrest any defaulters, before such one will be released from Nigerian forces. Accepted dress must have brought to him or her to put on”
Another section says “nevertheless, I know you need my assistance, I have mobilized these young men Valiant Purity to Assist. As trousers belong to men, women should desist from it. No matter its style and stop wearing anything half naked. Your sons should stop plaiting their hair or putting ear rings or half naked [sagging].
Use this day to purify this nation, I don’t need your election in Nigeria.
So far no one knows if Prophet Abraham Isaac Ogbuta is among those apprehended by the police.
