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.

  1. I cant blame that pastor because he prayed for her,and again we humans likes were there is miracle and they dont even no what all this pastors are into.

  2. These are hungry people using the name of God to steal from innocent people. After receiving punishment on earth, he will receive in heaven if he didn’t ask for forgiveness

  3. The woman should have known that he’s not a genuine man of God, I believe she must have heard what’s going on in the world today about false prophet so she allowed herself to be used , women seeking for prayers from one pastor to the other when they can seek God face by themselves

  4. THAT WOMAN IS A FOOL.

    THAT MAN LOOKS LIKE ONE WHO HAS NOT EVEN SEEN A MILLION NAIRA.

    THE MAN SHOULD BE MADE TO PRODUCE ALL THE MONEY.

  21. A whole Pastor,when you’re not a yahoo boy,I don’t know what this world is turning into,may God forgive him,is not by force to be a pastor, most people calling theirselves pastor are just bearing the name because of money

  22. This very bad
    Pastor for that matter
    He should not go unpunished
    He should face the consequences of what he did

  23. I believe she willingly paid the money to the pastors account herself, so why saying that pastor defrauded her. Why didn’t she say know when the pastor asked for the money.

  24. HOW IS THIS A PASTOR WIT A CRIMINAL MIND…HE SHOULD BE JAILED FOR FRAUD LIKE THEY DO TO ALL THOSE YAHOO BOYS HIS CASE WONT BE DIFFERENT NO TIME TO BE WASTED MYDEAR

  25. Most pastors have really gone astray these days because of material things of this world. It’s a pity.

  26. Fake pastors everywhere using God’s name to do wickedly. Its high time people become wise especially women. Let’s stop falling victims to these false pastors. He should be made to produce all the money. What a wicked and greedy man

  27. Everyone want to be rich even pastors because they are seeing other pastors like them with private jets cars so he goes for his own

  28. Man of God that is into defrauding people is not a genuine man of God but a criminal that must punished accordingly as required in law.

  29. See our pastor of now adays what example are they live for the church members he need to be purnished

  30. All this atrocities in the name of man of God, well u can deceive man but not God.
    This serves as a lessons to those who looks for miracle instead seeking the face of God.

  31. If it should be more harder than this many will deny their faith. We need to stand firm at all time especially in a time like this.

  32. The pastor should be punished severely, he is scamming people and claiming he is helping them, he is a real thief.

  33. Why will the woman trust a man like that, genuine pastors don’t do such things, they have the fear of God

  34. Pastor of the world, extorting money from member, is that what God asked you to do, government should punish him before God will punish him.

  35. The woman in question sees what she is looking for. You are looking for miracle now you see wonders. How can you transfer money up to 27million to someone just for prayers. For her to transfer such money for prayers she must definitely be rich. Who knows where she even get the money from.

  36. This is why God said that his jugement will start in the church. Pastors of now adays are now doing what is against the law .

  37. You want to make it by all means and called your self a pastor,not that God called you.Good thief may God just help you.

  38. Hmm even pastors do fraud oh what a disgrace may God forgive them because they don’t know what they are doing

  39. You can imagine the so called Man of God.Judgement awaits him.He had the mind to defraud the lady and I’m sure she’s not his only Victim.He should pay for his crime

  41. No real pastor demand money from members, they depend on God for miracles and he always see them through.

  42. How can somebody be asked to pay for cleansing and the victim also did, Jesus has died and ressurected for us all and through him all has found live, that man took the victim out of ignorance, good job from EFCC

  43. All this one are not men of God oo, one needs to be very careful from this people claiming to be pastor.

  44. Be should be charged to court because it’s his kind that bring bad names to the church God have mercy.

  45. I’ll keep wondering the kind of prayers that would require such amount of money. Well thank God he was arrested.

  46. This is the result of looking for miracles in the name of problem. Even if you have problem common sense should not be skipped in this instance, up to the extent of transferring that amount of money to the so called Pastor.

  47. Man of God why? Stop relegating ourselves in d name of wealth acquisition, may God forgive and come to ur aid,

  48. it is not fraud because the woman paid for the services the man rendered to her.it is the woman that came for him and not the man

  49. She was going through difficulty and she has that kind of money,,I wonder the type of difficulty,,things are happening in churches sha,,Bible prophecy is truly being fulfilled

  50. We should be careful about some people we call pastor we share our secret with.he must refund the money only God know how many people he has defraud

  51. Hmm. Later they will say that they are men of God. Maybe it’s Good that ask them to still the money.

  52. After receiving punishment on earth, he will receive in heaven if he didn’t ask for forgiveness oh

  53. She was looking for miracle and she paid for what she looked for, the pastor sold his services , God help us in this generation.

  54. Hmmmmmm. All this end time pastors.. Thank God you have been caught it will serve as lesson to others of his kind

  55. Pastors of today especially pastors of new generational churches are solely out to make money off unsuspecting church members
