One Pastor Emmanuel Okwedimbu has been arrested and charged before Ejigbo Magistrates’ court for allegedly defrauding and threatening to kill one of his church members over N1.4m land scam in Lagos State, western Nigeria.

Okwedimbu allegedly collected the money from Amobi Charles under false pretence of assisting him to purchase a parcel of land for him which later turned out to be false.

Charles then confronted him and asked him to refund his money since he could not get any land as they agreed. It was then Charles realized that Okwedimbu had no intention to buy the land or refund his money.

It got to a point that Okwedimbu warned and allegedly threatened to kill Charles if he demanded for the money from him.
The matter was reported to the police at Idimu command who invited Okwedimbu and he refused to show up.

The police trailed him to his house to arrest him and when he saw Charles and the police officers, he took to his heels. But the police pursued, caught up with him and arrested him.

He was charged to court on a five-count charge of conspiracy, fraud, threat to life, attempt to escape and obtaining under false pretence.

    The funny thing here is that after all this, you will still find people dressed well and having their bibles on sundays. And when you ask them, they would say they are going to this pastor’s church.

    Fake pastors everywhere you go. Those trusting their pastors with things very important to them, beware. You never can tell, he might turn out to be a thief and ritualist.
