Pastor defrauds prayer-seeking woman of N27.9 million


The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission [EFCC] has arrested a pastor for allegedly defrauding a woman of N27.9 million.

Anu Ojo Olakonori, a self-acclaimed pastor and founder of Angel on Guard Ministries, was arrested following a petition by the victim.

EFCC spokesperson, Tony Orilade, who confirmed the arrest, said the complainant alleged that sometime in 2016, she was introduced to the suspect by a pastor of hers in Bauchi for prayers and cleansing because of the difficulties she was going through at the time.

The suspect, under this guise, started requesting for money from her and she made transfers to him in different tranches amounting to N27, 900,600.

An investigation has also revealed that the suspect used the said sum to purchase various properties – house and cars, for himself. He will be charged to court as soon as investigations are concluded.
