- A suspected robber, John Godwin, has explained the reason why he was finally arrested
- According to him, it was because he forgot to read Psalm 121 before going out on an operation
- Four other suspects have been arrested alongside Godwin
A 30-year-old cross-border robbery suspect, John Godwin, has claimed that he was arrested by the police because he failed to read the Bible.
According to him, he usually reads Psalm 121 before going on operations, so luck eluded him when he forgot to read it.
He added that he was arrested because God wanted the police to apprehend him, so that he quits robbery.
“My parents told me when I was born a pastor prophesied that I would become a pastor. When I was in the prison I used to preach and pray with my colleagues.
It is the devil that drove me to crime. Whenever we are going on an operation, I usually read Psalm 121.
I believe reading the Psalms would give me protection throughout the operation period,” he explained.
Four other suspects, Solomon Adeniji, Tosin Adeoye and two nationals of the Republic of Benin, Adewale Adebolaji and Moyori Sule, were arrested alongside Godwin.
The Zonal Police Public Relations Officer (ZPPRO), CSP Dolapo Badmos, revealed the suspects used to snatch vehicles in Nigeria, drive them to Benin Republic and hand them over to a receiver only known as Alhaji.
