Police in Rwanda have arrested a controversial American pastor as he was about to hold a press conference in the capital Kigali.

Greeg Schoof was arrested for holding an “illegal meeting with journalists in a public space.

Pastor Schoof owned a Christian radio station, Amazing Grace Radio FM, which was banned last year after it was accused of promoting division in the country.

The radio station had caused widespread anger last year after a local pastor said on-air that women were “dangerous creatures of evil, going against God’s plans”.

Pastor Schoof said he had been denied access to the venue he had booked to give a press conference before he left Rwanda.

As he stood outside complaining to journalists, police arrived and arrested him.
