A 45-year-old pastor, Joseph Olude and his church member, Rasak Raheem have been arrested by Police in Lagos State for allegedly robbing in the Idiroko-Oke Odan area, a border community between Ogun State, Nigeria, and the Benin Republic.
The two suspects were arrested by the operatives of the Zonal Intervention Squad, after a tip-off, while other members of the gang fled.
On Thursday, August 11, the police received information that a robbery gang was operating in the Idiroko-Oke Odan area, and dispossessing motorists of their valuables.
A businessman, who was moving money from Nigeria to the Benin Republic, was said to have put a distress call across to the police.
The two suspects were thereafter arrested.
Olude, a father of five children, confessed he owned a church, Elohim Cherubim and Seraphim Church, in the Hunbe, Ajegunle area of Ogun State.
