Controversial televangelist Ezekiel Odero has been granted access to his New Life Church and Kilifi International School bank accounts that had been frozen on the 8th of May 2023 after he was arrested.
This is after the lapse of the 15 days issued by the court.
The decision was taken after the Investigative Officer Chief Inspector Martin Munene told the court that he has so far received documents from the banks holding accounts of the two institutions and he has no objections to having them opened.
While being cross-examined by Lawyer Danstan Omari, Munene told the court that from the documentation received none of the accounts was in the name of the pastor.
He said all accounts were either for the church or the school.
The investigating officers however protested to the court to have Safaricom compelled to supply Mpesa data relating to the preacher after the company failed to respond to the request.
The matter will be mentioned on Tuesday next week to confirm if Safaricom will have complied with the court order.
