Operatives of the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad(FSARS) have arrested pastor Jeremiah Ehindero, the founder of Jesus Miracle Church, Sango Otta, Ogun State, for allegedly stealing a Toyota Highlander jeep under the guise of test driving it.
Confessing to the crime, the suspect said he stole the car in order to sell it and use the proceed to settle some outstanding loan he invested in his church.
His confessional statement below:
“I decided to steal the SUV and use the proceeds to settle the N650,000 I borrowed from Mirco-finance bank in Lagos. I borrowed the sum of N650,000 from a Micro-finance Bank to renovate my church and to recover the investment from tithes and offerings, I was surprised that for three months, no money was realized to repay the loan.
“When the pressure from the micro Finance became too unbearable for me, the devil told me to steal a vehicle from a car dealer to sell and use the proceeds to repay the loan.”
