The General Overseer of God’s Favour Ministry, Iba, Lagos State, Daniel Onwugbufor has been arrested by the Ogun State Police Command for alleged car snatching.

Men of the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad arrested the pastor alongside one Israel Animashaun on Thursday February 1, 2018.

Abimbola Oyeyemi, the state Police Public Relations Officer, said their arrests followed a series of car snatching reports which the command had been trying to unravel.
He said police efforts paid off when one of the snatched cars, a Lexus RX 330 Jeep, was tracked to the pastor’s residence at Iba.
Oyeyemi further said that the pastor’s arrest led to the apprehension of Animashaun, an active member of a three-man gang which specialised in snatching exotic cars at gunpoint.

According to him, Animashaun confessed that his gang snatched the Lexus Jeep at gunpoint at Ajah, Lagos, and took it to the pastor, who used to help them in selling such items.

The suspect was said to have also confessed that the pastor paid him N350,000 for the car and he (pastor) had used it for two weeks before transferring it to another accomplice in Onitsha, Anambra State.

Oyeyemi said, “The pastor, who first denied knowing Animashaun to be an armed robber, later confessed when confronted by the said Animashaun. He blamed his action on the devil.”

Osun Guber: Don’t Kill Yourselves Over Who Becomes Governor, Only God Gives Power — Ooni Of Ife

Published

The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, Ojaja II, has warned youths against political violence before, during and after the Osun gubernatorial election coming up on Saturday.

Oba Ogunwusi gave the warning during the courtesy visit of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) gubernatorial candidate, Sen. Iyiola Omisore to his Palace, on Thursday, in Ile-Ife.

He said: “It is only Almighty Allah that has the power to elevate whoever He wants to the post. For He is in Heaven doing what pleases Him”.

According to him, people don’t need to fight each other over getting to a post, but should rather allow God’s will to come into perfection.

The royal father, therefore, appealed to all and sundry to maintain peaceful coexistence in the forthcoming election, saying there is no gain in blood shedding.

Earlier, Omisore lauded the Ooni for his fatherly role and for supporting his aspirations to rule the state.

Omisore also thanked Ife and Osun indigenes, for rallying around him in his campaign and appealed to all and sundry to support him by casting their votes for him during the election.
