The Delta State Police Command said on Tuesday that it has arraigned one Pastor Victor Osakwe at the Asaba Magistrate Court for allegedly defrauding unsuspecting victims of more than N20 million.
The Command’s Acting Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Charles Muka, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Asaba that the pastor defrauded more than 20 people of both money and properties.
Muka also alleged that Osakwe was a fake pastor at the Holly Hill Zion Prophetic and Solution Ministry, Akwu Ofu, Asaba.
“Osakwe has been arraigned on 20-count charges for frequently defrauding over 20 persons of a total of N20 million.
“The Pastor’s mode of operation is to raise false alarm on death and imminent calamity on his unsuspecting victims to make them part with their cars and monies,” the police spokesman said.
He said that Osakwe had been remanded in the prison, adding that items recovered from him included two saloon cars, two jeeps, among other items. (NAN)
