The Lagos State Police Command, under the leadership of CP Hakeem Odumosu, may have charged the officers and men of the Command to rise to the challenge of protecting lives and property, most especially on the period of the ‘ember’ month might necessitate CSP Tokumbo Abaniwonda to double up her operational intelligence gathering in her jurisdiction .
The gallant police officer CSP Tokumbo Abaniwonda, Divisional Police Officer in charge of Ipaja, have arrested a popular Pastor of a white garment church over his alleged involvement in vandalism in Lagos.
It was gathered the suspect, Pastor Clement Oni, was arrested over his inordinate ambition to enrich himself through bunkering, pipeline vandalisation and petroleum product theft which has back fired.
It was gathered that the said ambitious Pastor Oni, who was said to have left his church members scattered and confused since his arrest, is now cooling off his heels at the Lagos State Police Command detention facility for interrogation.
He was arrested following an intelligence gathered, which prompted the DPO to lead operatives to his Celestial Church of Christ Parish premises, located at Imole Ayo, Peace Estate, Baruwa, inside Ipaja, Lagos State.
His alleged bunkering activity was exposed shortly after the inferno was ignited from the concealed drums and gallons of inflammable products carefully buried inside sand in the church premises.
It was confirmed that many people were feared dead while several others got injured in the inferno that engulfed the area on Thursday, December 5th, 2019.
It was also gathered that the activities of the suspected pipeline vandals had been going on unchallenged for long as residents were not willing to report to the appropriate authorities for fear of a reprisal attack from the suspected oil thieves.
A Police source said that the Pastor and his accomplices would be arraigned in Court when investigation is concluded.
