A 32-year-old man is arrested for allegedly stealing N620,115 from the offering vault of the Christian Apostolic Church Campground at Ikeji Arakeji, Osun State.

Akindele was among 20 suspects paraded by the Ekiti State Police Command to the Rapid Response Brigade office. He was intercepted on a motorbike while carrying a school bag loaded with various denominations of naira notes.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Sunday Abutu, said, “during interrogation, the suspect confessed that he came all the way from Iropara Ekiti to CAC Campground, Ikeji, Arakeji, Osun State, to steal a cash sum of N620,115 from the offering box of the church.”

The suspect told local media that being a former security guard at the campground before his voluntary resignation, made him know where the church kept its money, and he decided to go there for the operation.

The police spokesman said the suspect would be brought to justice at the end of the investigation.
