Bulldozers, escorted by security forces, reduced to rubble the Redeemed Christian Church of God and the Lord Chosen Church. The Executive Secretary of Urban Development and some key police officers were at the scene. The police blocked all the entrances to prevent church members from entering the premises. Those who tried to take pictures were chased away by police officers. Then they went to the second church, which was also completely demolished.
