By Daud Olatunji

ABEOKUTA—An acclaimed Pastor and General Overseer of God’s Favour Ministry, Iba, in Lagos State, Pastor Daniel Onwugbufor, has been arrested by men of Ogun State Police Command for armed robbery.

The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Abimbola Oyeyemi, in a statement said “the pastor was arrested along with one Israel Animashaun recently through technical intelligence by men of FSARS led by Uba Adams.



He said “Their arrest followed series of car snatching reports, which the Command has been trying to unravel and have been working on a clue to smash the syndicate.

“Their efforts paid off when one of the snatched cars, a Lexus RX 330 jeep, was tracked down to the pastor at his Iba resident consequent upon which the pastor was promptly arrested.

“This arrest led to the apprehension of Animashaun, who is an active member of a three man gang of armed robbery syndicate specialized in snatching of exotic cars on gun point.

“On interrogation, Animasaun confessed that he and two others snatched the Lexus jeep on gun point at Ajah in Lagos and took it to the Pastor, who used to help assist them in selling such stolen items.”

He stated further that the Pastor only paid him the sum of N350,000 for the car after using it for two weeks before he sent it to his other accomplice.
