Port Harcourtâ€”A pastor (names withheld) with a Pentecostal church, who specialises in snatching flashy cars across the country as well as using the pulpit to dupe people has been picked up by the police in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
Although the devilish clergy man hails from Nkanu Local Government Area of Enugu State, Police PRO, Rita Inoma-AbbeyÂ (DSP), said the man was trailed to his hideout at downtown Iwofe, Obio/Akpor Council where he has been frolicking with some skimpily-dressed girls.
The randy cum robber pastor was found in Kano where he snatched a Toyota Carina Wagon car with registration number DX 645 ABJ. Before the recent robbery, the man was said to have snatched a jeep and Mercedes Benz 190 in Port Harcourt and Kano respectively.
The dubious churchman told pressmen at the police headquarters that he sold the jeep and Benz at N350, 000 and N200, 000 respectively to some vehicle auctioneers in Enugu because he needed money to have some good time with his fleet of women.
DSP Abbey said the deceitful man who claims to be a pastor had also been accused of duping a woman in Kano of N300, 000, after which he bolted from the state and headed for the southern part of the country to squander the spoils of fraud.
She said the fugitive had been on the wanted list of the police across the country since 2008 for the alleged crime and other criminal activities, particularly as he goes about the land fooling the public with the cloak of a clergyman.
Accordingly, the police said the brigand would soon be docked when investigations have been completed but that he would continue to cool his heels in police cell while being grilled to explain the reasons behind his unwholesome behaviour.
