The Nigerian pastor who received N150k for spiritual protection, after staging the kidnap of church members, was paraded alongside his accomplice, Ibukun Adetigha. According to the State Police Commissioner, the suspects were arrested after a kidnap victim, Segun Omosaye, who was previously kidnapped by unknown gunmen on November 30, last year regained his freedom a month after.
A text message was reportedly received by Omosaye on September 26, 2018, and his prospective abductors who admitted the previous abduction, stated that they would come back to kidnap him again and kill him. It was gathered that Prophet Godwin Ayenuberun the Founder of Gethsemane Cherubim Church in Igbokoda, had previously claimed that he saw a vision that the victim would be abducted.
“On receipt of his complaint, detectives swung into action and through intelligence gathering, arrested one Ibukun Adetigha and Prophet Godwin Ayenugha, a founder of a church in Igbokoda.
The Techno handset that was used in sending text messages was recovered from them. Upon interrogation, the suspects confessed to have sent the text messages but denied their involvement in the abduction of the victim,” the police boss said.
Confessing to the crime, the Nigerian pastor said;
“I am the spiritual father of the victim; I am the one attending to all their spiritual problems. We are all friends, I am the one providing spiritual help for them.
I did it in a bid to get money from them. This is why I asked my boy to send message to them. I am not a kidnapper, I have never involved in kidnapping business before.”
