June 25, 2016 – Nigerian Policeman Turned Pastor Arrested For Armed Robbery In Rivers State

Police corporal Christian Oboko, a resident Pastor of Battle Axe Assembly Church located in Chuba Allo area of Port Harcourt has been arrested for armed robbery.

The 35-year-old suspect started his armed robbery career using two pistols his police team recovered from suspected robbers. He was known for always mounting the pulpit to preach about salvation and hell fire. He was also known for preaching to his colleagues at the slightest opportunity. Indeed, Oboko was trusted and respected among his peers.

But his sins appear to have finally found him out. Perhaps the most shocking of all is the fact that Oboko, who is a pastor and a corporal, is actually the leader of the robbery gang. He said: “I don’t know what came over me. I’m the resident Pastor of Battle Axe Assembly Church, located at the Chuba Allo area of Port Harcourt.

I have the calling from God to be a pastor. I don’t know what made me join this evil business of robbery.”

Oboko’s double life was blown open after one of his gang members, John Paul Amandi, 27, was arrested by the former Inspector General of Police, Solomon Arase’s Special Intelligence Response Team (IRT), deployed to Rivers State to investigate activities of car snatchers.

Immediately Amandi was arrested, he knew his days of terror had ended. With a resigned look on his face, he started singing like a bird. While spilling the beans, he mentioned his leader, Oboko. Oboko was arrested, tried and dismissed from the force.

    Ordinarily, I wouldn’t have even believed any pastor who is a policeman at the same time. Pastors could combine teaching, law, medicine etc without drawing my doubts. But once a policeman, I look at him twice.

    These are the men who bring ridicle to the holy Name of God. Their days do not last!

    Am not surprised. His calling was from the evil kingdom. So many of his type are out there, may they be caught soon.

    Too too bad that the officers meant to protect lives and properties are the ones killing and stealing from us. More investigation should be carried out, there many of his kind out there.
