The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on Wednesday, January 16, 2019, arrested Anu Ojo Olakonori, a self-acclaimed Pastor and founder of Angel on Guard Ministries for a N27.9 million fraud.

In a statement by Tony Orilade, its acting spokesperson, EFCC said Olakonori was arrested following a petition by the victim that sometimes in 2016, she was introduced to the suspect by a pastor of hers in Bauchi for prayers and cleansing because of the difficulties she was going through at the time.

“The suspect under this guise started requesting for money from her and she made transfers to him in different tranches amounting to over N27 million.

“Investigation has also revealed that the suspect used the said sum to purchase various properties – house and cars, for himself.

“He will be charged to court as soon as investigations are concluded,” the anti graft agency concluded.
