There was jubilation in Shoba community, Abule-Ado, Lagos, over the weekend, as security agents stormed a Pentecostal church, Power of the Holy Ghost Evangelical Ministry a.k.a Tuesday Tuesday Church, to arrest it’s pastor.
Vanguard reports that the G.O, Prophet Cletus Chukwunweuba Ilongwo, was arrested over allegations of scam made against him by some members of his church and the community.
Security agents, numbering about 100, stormed the church. It was gathered that Prophet Ilongwo was initially arrested early this year by the Police and EFCC after a former member of the church reported that he defrauded him of N85 million, which led to the loss of his job in one of the first generation banks in the country.
It was learned that after he was invited for interrogation, he jumped bail and efforts made to re-arrest him failed until his surety was arrested last week.
The pastor is known for burying cow heads within the church premises to boost his wealth and that of his members. His church was subsequently set ablaze after his arrest.
