Pastor arrested for alleged N28 million Fraud in Bauchi
A self-acclaimed pastor, Anu Ojo Olakonori has been arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), over an alleged N28 million fraud.
The suspect was arrested by the EFCC on Wednesday, January 16, 2019. He is the founder of Angel on Guard Ministries.
Olakonori was arrested following a petition by the victim who alleged that sometime in 2016, she was introduced to the suspect by a pastor of hers in Bauchi state 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.
The investigation has also revealed that the suspect used the said sum to purchase various properties – house and cars, for himself. The EFCC made it known that he will be charged to court as soon as investigations are concluded.
