A member of a Pentecostal church in Gwarinpa has been arrested for allegedly defrauding two pastors and other church members of about N5.1million.
The suspect had posed as a staff of Aso Radio and showed some cars to them at the premises of the radio station which he said were to be auctioned.
City News learnt that one of the pastors showed interest in buying five vehicles and paid him N3.1milion while the other pastor and some members of the congregation paid N2 million for several cars among the supposed vehicles to be auctioned. A police source said the two pastors have engaged in several prayer sessions since the case happened.
The source added that the suspect connived with a staff of Aso Radio to perpetrate the act as he took his victims to the premises and showed some grounded vehicles to them. “He took the pastor to the Aso Radio where he showed him the vehicles. The pastor also indicated interest and also announced to his members that so many of the members showed interest,” the source said. Read more
