I became a robber to raise enough money to build my church - admits suspect

He claimed he did not have finances to start a church so he resorted to robbery to get capital

According to Nelson, a father of three, he said “I have a pastoral calling; unfortunately, I don’t have money to start my church. I have had the calling for years, but no finance to make it a reality.”

Nelson, who has masterminded several robbery operations, also noted that he and members of his gang carried out three robbery operations recently. “We actually snatched three cars last month,” he added.

Married

The gang leader, Nelson, said: “I am married with three kids. I am a professional driver. My wife doesn’t know that I am into robbery.

“Since my colleagues are afraid of holding the toy gun during operations, I take responsibility for everything. I am the one that holds the gun and drives at the same time during operations.

“I was the one who introduced most of them into the gang. I had plans that when I establish my church, one of them would head the musical department because he is a talented gospel artist.

Crusade

Another gang member confessed, “I met Nelson during a crusade programme. He told me that he loved my performance and that he would love to invest in my musical career.

“Early this month, Nelson asked me to follow him to an operation so that I can actualise my dreams. I told him that I have never done that kind of thing. He convinced me.”
