Wonders they say shall never end- a Nigerian pastor, Adegoke Adewuyi, is currently in police custody for allegedly faking his own kidnap with the aim of extorting N3 milllion from his congregation.
Adewuyi, a pastor with the Ado-Ekiti Methodist church connived with one Oluwadere Sunday to fake his kidnap. Shortly after news of the clergyman’s kidnap reached his church members on Sunday June 9, 2019, Sunday contacted the church members telling them that the pastor was in his custody, demanding a sum of N3 million to be paid before he is released, according to the police.
However, Sunday was arrested by police when he came to pick up the ransome. He then led the police to the hotel where the pastor had been hiding.
