Abuja - An Edo State pastor has been arrested alongside two other notorious robbers after it was found that he had been involved in burglary and molestation, Naij has reported.

Osazee Igbinigie, an assistant pastor in a new age church, was apprehended alongside Samson Ogbesosa, an Edo State indigene, after it was found that they had robbed a girl of her handset and slwpt with her in the process.

The pastor, a Benin University graduate, has since claimed that he had gone into the bank to await judgement on an accusation of fraud which has left him perplexed.

"I was shocked because that account was opened since 2004 when I was teaching in a private school. I feel embarrassed now because I don’t know who did that to me. They said a prominent woman of God used it and I have never received any fraudulent money from it," said the confused suspect.

The suspects will be charged to court on conclusion of investigations.
