Police arrest church guard over N620,115 offering theft

Men of the Ekiti State Police command have disclosed that they have arrested a 32-year-old man, Olufemi Akindele for allegedly carting away the sum of N620,115 from the offering vault of the Christian Apostolic Church Campground at Ikeji Arakeji, Osun State.

It was reported that the suspect was intercepted on a motorbike by policemen on stop and search duty along the Igbara Odo-Akure Road and was found with a school bag loaded with different denominations of naira notes.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Sunday Abutu, said, “During interrogation, the suspect confessed that he travelled all the way from Iropara Ekiti to the CAC Campground, Ikeji, Arakeji, Osun State, to steal a cash sum of N620,115 from the offering vault of the church.”

The suspect told reporters that he had previously worked as security at the campground before voluntarily resigning and that his familiarity with the area had given him knowledge of where the church kept its funds, which led him to decide to go there for the operation.

The police spokesperson said the suspect would be charged in court at the end of the investigation.
