Church worker accused of armed robbery blames pastor

An administrative officer of the Cherubim and Seraphim Church, Igbogbo, Ikorodu, Olawale Olabinwonu, arrested for allegedly robbing a banker of a Nissan Sentra, 2015 model, at gunpoint at Iju-Ishaga, a border town between Lagos-Ogun, has held his pastor responsible for his ordeal.

Olabinwonu was caught after he advertised the car on an online trading platform while attempting to sell it. Detectives posing as buyers had approached the man who was in custody of the car at Lekki, and recovered it.

Subsequently, the man whose identity was not revealed led police to Olabinwonu’s house in Ikorodu but met his absence. He had parked out and took cover in Cherubim and Seraphim Church, Igbogbo where he was later apprehended by Rapid Response Squad.

However, the suspect in the statement he made to the police, denied he was member of the gang who robbed the banker.

The statement reads in part:”The car was given to me by Ahmed Abbey who i met at Dammy Jay Hotel, Ikorodu. He bought me drinks and we became friends. Along the line, i asked him for financial supports, and he told me his sister had a car that she wanted to sell and if i was able to sell it i would make some money.

“I consulted my pastor about the offer, and he told me to collect the car. It was my pastor who introduced me to the man the car was recovered from in Lekki.”
