January 11, 2017 – Lagos Pastor Dominion Ayendi Risks 15 Years In Jail For Duping Church Member Of N700K

Dominion Ayendi, a 45-year-old Pastor who allegedly defrauded his church member of N700,000, on Wednesday appeared before an Ikeja Magistrate’s’ Court on a three-count charge.

The police charged Ayendi, a resident of Ekoro Road, Abule-Egba, Lagos, with conspiracy, fraud and stealing.

According to the prosecutor, Insp. Clifford Ogu, the pastor defrauded Mr Godwin Onaja of N700,000 under the false pretences of using the money to execute a contract.

“The accused solicited for the complainant’s assistance, claiming that he secured a contract to be executed in Cross River, and that he was financially handicapped.

“He collected N700,000 from the complainant with a promise to pay back within three weeks, but did not pay,” he said.

Ogu said that the cleric committed the fraud and theft from Nov. 15, 2016 to Nov. 20, 2016 at Abule-Egba.
He added that the accused conspired with one Mark Orji to commit the offences.

Ogu said that the offences contravened Sections 285, 312 and 409 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.

The accused may be jailed for 15 years, if found guilty, according to the provisions of section 312.

The accused pleaded innocence of the charges, and was granted bail in the sum of N150,000 with two sureties in like sum.

The Magistrate, Mrs T. Akanni, adjourned the case to Jan. 25 for hearing.

    So sad he called himself pastor,though we do not know his own side of the story but judging with the majority of pastors we have in Nigeria,it can’t be far from truth.

    In other way round,if he risk going to jail for 15yrs because of 700k,how many will be for our politicians who are stealing millions of dollars from every Nigerian?…pls i need answer.
