A Bishop identified as Ginika Obi, has been arrested by the Police in Enugu state for allegedly defrauding members of the public some money in the tune of N500 Million.

The Enugu State Police Spokesman, Ebere Amaraizu said the Bishop who takes charge of  City of Liberation and Comfort Ministry is now aiding the police in investigation. He was apprehended in a Hotel somewhere in Enugu where he was keeping it low after 3 months of trail by the Security Operatives.

He Said:

“Before now, the suspect who hailed from Umuaku in Uli community of Ihiala Local Government Area in Anambra was also in-charge of an alleged financial Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) known as `Build Your Generational Organisation’ where his victims are made to invest with a hope of reaping a bumper financial dividend.

“It was gathered that his victims are numerous and with various degrees of complaints of huge amount of money swindled from them without anything to show for it.

“The suspect on noticing that police are on his trail based on complaints of alleged swindling of some suspected members of the public to the tune of N500 million with his wife and some of his eight alleged pastors, disappeared for months.

“The bishop, however, left his wife in Enugu Prisons custody over the matter. 

“During his disappearance from Enugu, preliminary investigations revealed that he escaped and relocated to Asaba in Delta to avoid being nabbed by police operatives for months.

“It was further gathered that luck ran out of the suspect over the weekend as he was trailed based on intelligence information to a hotel at Amechi Road off Agbani Road in Enugu where police operatives acting on a tip-off nabbed him,’’ he said.

Mr. Amaraizu said that the bishop had also revealed during preliminary investigations that he never knew that his alleged financial NGO would “turn out in this way”.

“The suspect (bishop) disclosed that the amount he defrauded was not up to the sum of N500 million but N186 million, while regretting his action."

Some of the suspect’s victims – Blessing Edekin, a widow; Nnenna Okonkwo, and Chidiebere Okolo – told the News Agency of Nigeria that the bishop had defrauded them of various sums of money and disappeared.

They expressed delight at his arrest.

The Commissioner of Police in the state, Danmallam Mohammed, had directed a full-scale investigation into the alleged nefarious activities of the cleric.
