Pastor, 4 others arrested over robbery in Lagos
A senior Pastor at the Ministry of the Holy Ghost, Joe Akan, and four other suspected members of his gang have been arrested in connection with a robbery operation in Agege, where a Toyota Highlander SUV was snatched from its owner, Vanguardngr reports.
The alleged mastermind, Uche, was said to have sold the idea to Lekan and Pastor Akan last week and reportedly invited Obi Isaac, 33, and Wasiu Jamiu, 26, for the operation, which took place last Friday.
Trouble, however, started after they were unable to sell the car at an initial price of N800,000. Another suspected accomplice, Olufemi Emmanuel, 39, was contacted to assist in the sale of the car.
The car was taken to three prospective buyers who wanted to pay N300,000. While others agreed to sell it at the give-away price, Lekan refused, an action that led to a misunderstanding between them, with Olufemi threatening to report them to the police if they sold it for N300,000.
It was further gathered that the suspects removed some parts from the vehicle which they sold at Ladipo. They were alleged to have given Pastor Akan N50,000.
