KINGSTON – Contoversial pastor Reverend Merrick Al Miller is claiming that alleged drug kingpin Christopher Dudus Coke wanted to surrender to the authorities last week in the hope that his decision would bring an end to the gang violence and garrison politics that have for decades blighted the nation. Miller, who was addressing the congregation at his Fellowship Tabernacle church in St Andrew for the first time since being charged with harbouring a fugitive and perverting the course of justice, said Coke’s stance had made him optimistic about the future.
