Rwandan officials have deported an American pastor who was arrested and accused of disturbing the public order, ABC News can report.

Conservative Baptist Missionary Gregg Schoof was deported after allegedly overstaying his work permit, according to the country’s immigration authorities.

Schoof, who has been living in the country since 2003, is reported to have been arrested by Rwandan Police for what they called an illegal meeting with journalists to criticize the government’s shutdown of his local radio station.

The Amazing Grace radio station was banned last year after authorities said it broadcast a sermon that described women as “evil.”

Responding to his deportation, Schoof criticized Rwanda authorities for loosening restrictions on abortion and teaching about reproductive health in schools.

“Is this government trying to send people to hell?” Schoof asked.

He added that “I did not come here to fight the government. I came to preach the gospel. I care nothing about politics. Nor do I care who is president or what party is in power.”

“But this government has taken a stand against God with its heathen practices. I hope Christians will do their lawful part in all this and simply do what is right and help fix these problems.”
