A 41-year-old suspect, identified as ‘Pastor’ Fidelis Nelson (aka MP), and leader of the dare-devil robbery gang operating within Lagos and Ogun states, has revealed that he went into robbery to raise money to build his church.
The self-styled pastor, who masterminded several robbery operations, noted that he and members of his gang carried out three robbery operations recently and “actually snatched three cars last month.”
The gang met their waterloo on June 16, after the Police received information indicating that some robbers, who specialised in snatching cars in Ogun State, were bringing their loots to Lagos for sale, then laid ambush for them.
Nelson, who is a father of three, told Vanguard, “I have a pastoral calling; unfortunately I don’t have money to start my church. I have had the calling for years, but no finance to make it a reality.”
