Pastor publishes own obituary to escape N3m debt repayment.
An Ondo State-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 N3 million he borrowed from a member of his church.
Pastor Oyewole was said to have falsely published and posted his obituary on a social media platform after he had sent a fake bank alert to his creditor, Boyede Emmanuel.
Oyewole was arraigned for fraudulently obtaining the money under the pretense 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 U.B.A account No. 2140338283, knowing he does not have such in his bank account.
