Dimeji Bankole’s Aide Shehu Somoye Arrested For Leading Robbery Gang

Ogun State Anti-Robbery Policemen have nabbed a robbery suspect who identified himself as Shehu Somoye for allegedly leading a gang of robbers to attack a Foursquare gospel church in Ibara Housing Estate, Abeokuta.

The robbers carted away N6 million from the church after dispossessing congregants of valuables and cash.

The gang led by Somoye had carried out a robbery operation in the aforementioned church but following a distress call, police surrounded the church and rained bullets on the robbers.

During the gun battle, police bullets hit Somoye in the leg, while a police Bareta pistol was recovered from him.

“So­moye, a former aide to Dimeji Bankole was hit by police bul­lets and a police pistol was recovered from him and we have been trying to ascertain the source of the pistol.” – said Ogun State Police PRO, Muyiwa Adejobi.

    It’s all political. Can police produce the money to the view of the public? How come only one suspect arrested? They know that the guy is indeed working hard for his party and they want to keep him away till the end of election.

    Humnnnnnnn, if Overseer of Foursquare Church of Nigeria doesn’t want wrath of God on all members, they should come out to say the true version of the story. They were only fighting over land and service haven’t started as at the time of the scene.

    Haba why can church be lying? Is the church using this as opportunity to have 6m?

    The issue between the boy said Sheu and a pastor of foursuare church was not a hidden case here in Ibara, they have issues of some plot of lands, while shue went to the pastors house for the issue on ground between them and the pastors house was in same compound with the church mean while service has not yet started when sheu and others went there before police came around and got him arrested…
    What is 6m has to do about this?
    Pastors think twice God is able!

    What this country is turning to ? so pastor and church members can claim this when they know before God and man that there was nothing of such . They should only claim and question him for what he did and let him answer that only .Meanwhile the man at the custody should be given a medical attention because denying him of his right means there is something personal about it . perhaps politics …..This man must not die in that custody or else . We only take advantage of one another in this country when everybody has his own . Pastor lier , Church members devil. people that arrested him commit the highest crime in d country. Question him 4 what he did and let d judgment take place

    The world is coming to an end. Even a propal investigation is not going on cos the pastor must explain where a got the six million from we need people who fear God to assist in this cos presently he is not been giving a medical attention why should all dis happen why as for d pastor remember the judgment day

    Lame brains here, these should be the questions; what is shehu doing with a gun? Does is have right to carry gun? Is shehu a law enforcement agent? Where did he get thhe gun from? Wht is he doing with the gun as at the time he was arrested? These a rightful thinking Nigerians shld be asking not church lieing about 6M and who says church can have 6M?

      Sheu is not a thief all this are political propaganda after the election I believed he will be out,about where he got the gun shouldn’t be an issue at this political dispensation if Boko Haram can have access to all this explosives, machine guns, bombs and all sorts of destructive weapons even an army of its own in a civilised country and the sick govt can not save the masses so what are we saying of a nation where ur security is highly at risk.Frankly speaking the robbery is just a fabricated story so man of God fear that God u preached.Everything got its own time and season.The bible say my people are periching cos they lack wisdom . Anyway the world is coming to an end and nothing new again!!!….

    One would not have reacted to this story if not for the picture used! The reason being that the incident in question has no relationship whatsoever with the picture pasted! I also know for a fact, as a member of the church, that there was no such thing as a robbery in the Foursquare Church at Ibara Housing Estate and NEVER has the church ever handled such amount of money during any service let alone such being stolen by armed robbers! We therefore hereby reject such an incident and/or its attribution to foursquare, ibara in the Name of Jesus, distance the church completely from the matter & the arrest of persons, plus it’s political coloration. We demand that the picture mischievously used to connect the foursquare church & her unsuspecting members to a matter which is completely alien to them, be expunged immediately by whoever placed the picture in the story. LASTLY I REITERATE THAT THE ROBBERY OF N6MILLION CASH IN QUESTION, DID NOT TAKE PLACE AT FOURSQUARE GOSPEL CHURCH, IBARA HOUSING ESTATE. The Foursquare Gospel Church Ibara Housing Estate and her Pastors stand for integrity and preach the boundless love of God in Christ Jesus- the only Saviour of mankind, the Baptiser with the Holy Spirit, the mighty Healer and soon coming King!- The Foursquare Gospel. Receive Jesus into your heart today and your life will be transformed. Readers & commentators please be informed and get details about where such an incident occurred. God bless you. THANK YOU
