Joseph Olude, a 45 year old pastor of Elohim Cherubim and Seraphim Church, has been arrested for robbery in the Hunbe area of Ogun state.

The pastor was arrested with his church member, Rasak Raheem on Thursday, August 11 by men of the Zonal Intervention Squad of the Zone 2 police command, Onikan. The Policemen arrested them on a tip off that a robbery gang was robbing motorists in the Idiroko-Oke Odan area.

The duo were arrested while other members of the gang fled. Zone 2 police spokesperson, SP Muyiwa Adejobi, said the Assistant Inspector-General of police (AIG), Abdulmajid Ali, had ordered a thorough investigation into the case.

“The suspects operated along border areas of Ogun State, Benin Republic and even Togo. The ZIS operatives were detailed to the scene and they arrested the two suspects along Madoga Road between Nigeria and the Benin Republic. “Effort is on to arrest the fleeing members of the gang,” he also added that an AK-47 rifle fully loaded with 30 rounds of live ammunition, and 15 extra AK-47 ammunition were recovered from the suspects.

Joseph Olude said: “I have five children. I was arrested when the police found five guns on my premises. It was my church member, Bidemi, who invited Raheem.

Raheem however countered the Pastor, saying; “The pastor and I are friends. I went to his church and a man called Bode from Cotonou brought the guns. I told the pastor that the guns were for safekeeping in the church and he said there was no problem.

“About two weeks ago, Bidemi called me that he wanted to use the guns around the border area. I said he should bring N10, 000 when coming and he agreed. “The robbers collected the guns and when they were done with them, they paid another N10, 000. I knew they used the guns to rob. It was a five-man gang”
