Church pastor who specializes in stealing cars arrested

A 33- year- old prophet and founder of the Redeem Assembly  Church, Ohafia, Abia state,  Prophet Chibunnam Onyenweaku, was yesterday paraded in Umuahia.

He was paraded by the new Abia State Commissioner of Police, Mr Adeleye  Olusola Oyebade for allegedly stealing a Toyota Camry car, parked  on the roadside by the owner, who went for a burial in the vicinity.

Sunnews reports that Prophet Onyenweaku who hails from Ezinneihite in Mbaise Imo State, was paraded with his colleague in crime, Pastor  Princewill Nwabugwu, from Osisioma Ngwa, in Aba,  Abia state.

The commissioner  said that prophet Onyenweaku and  Pastor Nwabugwu met at the  Apostolic theological Seminary school,  Amumara Mbaise, and after graduation, started pastoring in the apostolic church before they pulled out to open their own ministries.

“While prophet Onyenweaku opened his church at Ohafia, Nwabugwu diverted into aluminum fabrication, until car theft brought them together again.

The two “men of God” confirmed that they specialize in stealing Camry cars parked by their owners. The suspects were paraded at the Officers Mess, at Factory Road, Umuahia. He told newsmen that Prophet Onyenweaku  is the founder  of the Assembly of Redeemed Church of God, Elu Ohafia.

“ What they do is to monitor people who drive Camry vehicles and once you park your car, they will monitor you and immediately you move, they will use their master key to open the car and drive it away. You only come back and will not see your car again. They were arrested when they came to steal a particular Camry car that was parked by the owner on the road at Elu Ohafia.

“The owner went to wake keeping and parked his car and when they sighted the car, they came and parked their own jeep in front and one of them walked back to the parked car and used the master key to open it .

When the owner came out, he raised alarm, went to the police and vigilante group and information about the theft was circulated and every body was on guard. As the police  were on surveillance, they saw the Camry coming out from Bakassi Street with the Honda CRV  jeep of the prophet following.

They were arrested by angry mob who burnt the prophet’s jeep and attempted to burn the two alleged thieves but for the intervention of the police.
