Culled from VANGUARD
One of the suspects, Ibikunle John, discovered to be the General Overseer of The Way of Joy church located on Alliu street, Egbe,Lagos, told Crime Alert that on the day of the operation, (March 13, 2013) he administered an oath of secrecy on members of the gang before they left.
The oath according to him, was administered in the gang’s hideout inside a bush located around Odogbolu area of Ogun state.
Hear him, “ Yes. I am the one that administered an oath on them the day they went to work. I waited for them in the bush until they came back. In the bush located in Ijebu-Ode, there is a hut where one can even sleep if one wishes. But no one person can come there, except he is a member of the gang.
Asked to describe how the oath was administered, he replied: “You won’t understand because it is a spiritual thing, as incantation was said into a horn.”
Also asked if he owned a church of his own, he replied: “Yes. I am the general overseer. It started as a Spiritual Healing Church where God used me to heal people with diverse strange illnesses.”
Also asked why he ventured into heinous crime, if indeed he was a genuine man of God, he shook his head in regret and in an emotional laden voice, said, “ I was introduced into it by Asiwaju. I did not know he was a robber then. But when I did, I tried to withdraw from him. But it was too late. He introduced me to other members of his gang.”
SMH!! This is no man of God! He is just one of the new crop of charlatans who go about dragging God's name in the mud! Hmm...no fear of God anymore. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God! He who has an ear, let him hear.
