Pastor & 3 Others Arrested For Stealing Petrol At NNPC Pipeline In Majidun, Ikorodu, Lagos

2 days ago, Lagos Task force officials arrested 4 people over oil theft at Majidun in Ikorodu area of Lagos state.

In total 317pcs of 55-litre petrol kegs totaling 15850 litres were recovered during the raid.

The suspects including a self-proclaimed Pastor were among those arrested.

We learnt the they were caught at about 5pm on Tuesday when task force officers saw them stealing petrol from NNPC pipeline into 50-litre kegs at Majidun.

Many of the oil thieves escaped by jumping into the river.

The name of those  arrested suspects are;

  • Oluafin Abejoye, who said he is a pastor at Holy Power church of Zion. He is 58 year old
  • 30 year old Samson Aliu
  • 21 Year Old Niyi Emorioloye
  • 22 year old Onyekachi Chukwu

The 3 suspects have denied the allegations claiming they’re victim of wrongful arrest.

What if these people are actually innocent?

What of those who escaped by jumping into the river?

Ya come say no rush to judgement cus the criminals involved alleged pastor?. Well, any time ya hear news about muslims, ya nid to verify it as well. Ya shouldn’t rush to judgement.

  3. if anyone need to be arrested,it is the police and all other law enforcement agent in dat area. i went to that area for a night vigil some months back in a church around isawo area, i saw police patrol van escorting tankers (white colour) around 2am and 4am….i mean the police, dis arrest is a propaganda. let all the DPO in that area be arrested as well…………….They are all criminals
