A man, who pretended to be a pastor of the Christ Apostolic Church, C.A.C, has been arraigned by the police for fraud. The accused, Joshua Kolawole, and his accomplice, Ademola Adeleke, are thought to have run a money-swindling syndicate, using religion as bait. The magistrate, O. A. Erinle, was told how Kolawole encountered Sulaimon around Yaba area of Lagos, claiming to have seen a divine vision about her. Just as they were discussing, Adeleke stopped to join in uninvited. At that point, Kolawole ordered both of them to bring some sand from the main road. Adeleke left to do as Kolawole ordered, leaving his telephone and an envelop with the pretended pastor. He had done so with the aim of making Sulaimon believe the envelop contained money and help make her believed the conman was a real pastor. Upon Sulaimon's arrival, Kolawole and Adeleke had disappeared. Kolawole would later be arrested while planing to defraud another person, and subsequently arrested by the police. The two accused were slammed with five counts charge, including conspiracy, impersonation and fraud. Kolawole and Adeleke made a no-guilty plea to the offence and granted a bail bond of N80,000 each, with two sureties in like sum. The  case was adjourned till September 14, 2015.
