Man Attacks Church Member Giving Him A Ride Home In Ilorin, Snatches Her Church At Knife Point

A manhunt launched by the Kwara State police command, has led to the arrest of a middle aged man on Friday in Ilorin, who reportedly hijacked his church member’s car with a 12-month old baby on Thursday night.

Tribune reports that the car was hijacked after the victim agreed to help the suspect who attends her church, to Diviland area of Gaa-Akanbi. However, midway through their journey, he brought out a knife and asked the victim to alight, and reportedly drove off with the baby who he abandoned at Akerebiata area and drove back to Asa Dam area, where he parked to spend the night with his girlfriend.

The lady who narrated her ordeal to newsmen, said;

“We had just finished the communion service and then this man came up to me asking that I help him up to Diviland, which is just near my own house.
I agreed to help him and just as I took the turn to our house immediately after Diviland, he brought out a knife and asked me to surrender the car.

I struggled with him for sometime because I noticed that the knife he carried was not a very strong one but there was nobody to come to my aid. He later pushed me out and that was when people around realised something was wrong so they came but he had already sped off.”

  1. @naijajists clear picture and his full NAME AS IT APPEARS ON HIS I.D, not a street name please!
    Expose this criminal.

    Thank God nothing happen to the little 12 month old angel.

  2. He’s not a church member, just thieves stalking out people in church, for their personal gain. On the other hand, who knows what these so called church goers are capable of, with “Pastors” using human beings for ritual? Perhaps Armageddon will begin from Nigeria. Too much evil emanating from that country. Na real wah o.

  3. In these trying times we live in, just as you fear Ebola, lassa fever and all diseases, it is wisdom to fear, pastor, fear prophet, fear imam and fear self professed men of God…. So it is double wisdom to be careful of fellow church goers. People attend church for different personal reasons and this is evident from the number of people who approach other members of their congregation, asking for financial help for something or the other and later exhibiting belligerence when refused such request. Indeed if you have a senior phone it is advisable not to carry it to church otherwise someone will likely yield to temptation and forget God and church while gladly stealing your phone.
    A lady driving alone is vulnerable and giving strangers or mere acquaintances rides has proved unsafe many times, so the watchword is” exercise care” . Thank God you were not hurt…..and there is nothing like weak knife, even a fragile looking or blunt knife is dangerous!
