Oyakhilome made the statement while preaching about the coronavirus stay-at-home order. Due to the stay-at-home given by the government, religious organisations have been directed not to hold any gatherings for this period.

The pastor started his statement by sharing the story of how a man was heard bragging about how he arrested a pastor. Oyakhilome, who compared the incident to how Jesus was also arrested in the same manner, said the man was not the first to arrest a man of God.
