Ondo Pastor publishes own obituary to avoid N3m debt
An Ondo- based cleric Pastor Paul Oyewole has been arraigned before a Chief Magistrate’s Court in Ondo town for faking his own death to avoid paying N3m he borrowed from a member of his church.*
*Oyewole was said to have falsely published and posted his obituary on a social media platform after he sent a fake bank alert to his creditor, Boyede Emmanuel.
Oyewole was arraigned for fraudulently obtaining the money under the pretence to pay back the money within seven days.
He was further alleged to have falsely published and posted his obituary on WhatsApp after he had sent a fake alert to an account, knowing fully that he did not have such an amount in his bank account.
Oyewole was alleged to have threatened the complainant on phone with the intent to intimidate him and conducted himself in a manner likely to cause a breach of the peace, by stripping himself naked in front of the complainant’s house.
