Police have arrested a pastor allegedly involved in a case of child abuse, in which the parents were told their son was possessed by demons.
Scotland Yard said the arrest was prompted by BBC information
Scotland Yard said officers from its Child Abuse Investigation Command had arrested a man, 40, in south London on suspicion of inciting child cruelty.
It said the arrest followed information broadcast by the BBC and included in a report on Radio 4's Today programme.
The man remains in police custody and inquiries are ongoing, police said.
A report by BBC correspondent Angus Stickler broadcast on Today alleged that pastor Dieudonne Tukala had diagnosed a nine-year-old boy, whose parents are from the Democratic Republic of Congo, as being possessed by demons.
Police would not confirm whether the man arrested was Dr Tukala.
