A Nigerian prophet, Cletus Ilongwo, has been picked up by the police for defrauding a church member of an amount of GHC654,802.
He was, on Monday November 5, 2018, remanded in prison by an Ikeja Special Offences Court in Lagos, Nigeria.
The accused, who appeared in court wearing dreadlocks and a long red garment, is the founder of the Power of the Holy Ghost Evangelical Ministry also known as the “Tuesday Tuesday Church.”
Justice Sherifat Solebo remanded the accused after he had pleaded not guilty to an 11-count charge levelled against him.
According to a report by the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), Ilongwo was arrested on Saturday, November 3, 2018, by over 100 security officials of both the Nigerian police and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
Ahmed Yerima, the EFCC Prosecutor, said that Ilongwo committed the offences between January and April 2016.
Responding, the defence counsel, P.N Orji, informed the court about a pending bail application he filed on behalf of his client.
Yerima, however, did not oppose the bail application but requested for more time to respond to the application.
The trial judge adjourned the case until November 14 for hearing of the bail application and November 19 for the commencement of trial.
