Kenyan police have arrested a popular televangelist and closed his church on the country’s Indian Ocean coast following reports of mass deaths.

The move comes as investigations go on into a religious cult linked to the deaths of nearly 100 people.

Police have not formally connected the two cases.

Pastor Ezekiel Odero, famed for drawing huge crowds at his functions, was held hours after police inspected a funeral home near his church.

The police said morgue attendants had been collecting bodies at the New Life International Church premises, in Kilifi county.

“This morning we have arrested Pastor Ezekiel Odero on allegations of the deaths that have been occurring at his premises,” Coast regional commissioner Rhoda Onyancha told reporters.
