A 41-year-old armed robbery suspect, identified as ‘Pastor’ Fidelis Nelson (aka MP), and leader of dare-devil robbery gang operating within Lagos and Ogun states, has said that he went into robbery to raise money to build his church.
The self-styled pastor, who masterminded several robbery operations, confessed: “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.”
The father of three said that he and members of his gang carried out three robbery operations recently and “actually snatched three cars last month.”
The gang members met their waterloo on June 16, when the Police received information indicating that some robbers, who specialized in snatching cars in Ogun State, were bringing their loots to Lagos for sale, then laid ambush for them.
