Pastor Adeboye’s Impersonator Arrested
A security man with Redeemed Christian Church of God, Awobola Babatunde, has been arrested and charged to court for trying to impersonate the General Overseer of the church, Pastor E.A. Adeboye.
Babatunde was arraigned before an Ebutte Metta magistrates’ court over allegations of opening an account in Pastor Adeboye’s name and attempting to cash a cheque of N600,000.
He committed the offence on June 6 at No. 1/9, Redemption Way, Ebutte Metta, where he allegedly stole a Fidelity Bank cheque valued at N600,000, belonging to the RCCG General Overseer.
Mr Aghoi Gbemileke, the police prosecutor told the court.
Funny enough, the security guard pleaded not guilty to the charges.
In her ruling, the magistrate, Mrs B. Folarin-Williams, admitted the accused to a bail of N100,000 and two sureties in like sum.
The sureties, she said, must be blood relations of the accused and must produce evidence of tax payment to the Lagos State government as part of the bail conditions. His trial will commence on August 4.
