Church Member Dupes Pastors, Others of N5.1m in Abuja

A church member who had the nerve to defraud his own pastors and other church members of large sums of money, has gotten himself into trouble.

The suspect, a member of a Pentecostal church in Gwarinpa 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 reports that one of the pastors showed interest in buying five cars and paid him N3.1m 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 2 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, many members showed interest,” the source said.

City News reports that the suspect received the money at different occasions between December, 2016 and January, 2017 after which he vanished.

He was tracked, arrested through one of the 3 girls he had introduced to the pastors as his fianceƩ.

The Gwarinpa Divisional Police Officer, CSP Nuruddeen Sabo, confirmed the incident. He said the suspect was arrested on Friday and that he confessed to the crime.

“He confessed to the crime and he is pleading with the pastors to give him some time to repay them their money but they have not agreed yet,” he said.

He said the case would be transferred to the area command if they failed to reach a consensus.
