The Namibian Police Force (NamPol) police will issue a report after completing an investigation into the operations of a Windhoek church accused of holding members against their will.
Church owner Jacques Sumpi said he felt the police were misinformed and had an agenda against the church.
Sumpi a Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) national denied kidnapping or holding his members captive against their will.
He acknowledged that sometimes, his members do overnight at the church for prayers or during a fasting period that starts in July and ends this month.
Windhoek Mayor Muesee Kazapua alleged that the church is preying on the vulnerable and desperate.
Kazapua stressed that 17 church members found there appeared brainwashed and compromised.
NamPol's Khomas Region community affairs officer, Inspector Christina Fonsech said members of the church have been reluctant to talk to the police, despite some being in a bad condition.
Members of the force acting on information from a concerned relative on Monday entered the premises of the Fountain of Living Waters Ministries on Dr Kenneth Kaunda Street in Freedom Square.
NamPol is expected to issue a full report upon completion of their investigation into allegations surrounding the church.
