His arrest is allegedly in connection with his prophecy on September 28, 2021 that dancehall artiste Shatta Wale will be shot on October 18, 2021.
Three men clad in mufti, with the driver in a police uniform picked up the prophet while he was waiting to appear on the mid-morning show Ayekoo Ayekoo.
The prophet had earlier indicated his plans to report himself to the law enforcement agency after the show.
He is being taken to the Police headquarters.
The police in a statement earlier said they cannot trace the whereabouts of Shatta Wale.
In a statement, the law enforcement agency said its attention had been drawn to a widely circulated news on the alleged gunshot-attack on Shatta Wale.
On hearing the news, the police noted it had launched an investigation into the matter including making contacts with some of his close friends and family members and all of whom claimed not to have knowledge of his whereabouts or the alleged incident.
Meanwhile, Shatta Wale says his life is in danger and he is on the run until the country shows him that there are laws.
He said this in a Facebook post to break his silence after rumours went viral that he had been shot by some unknown gunmen on Monday, 18 October 2021.
