Two Pastors Dada Babaroti and Clement Olatunde Fabeku have been arrested by Officials of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), for allegedly defrauding and sexually abusing innocent worshipers in their respective churches.
Fabeku who operates the Truth and Life Bible Church located in Ilorin, Kwara State capital and Babaroti , who is the General Overseer of the Blood of Jesus Christ, in Idanre area of Ondo State, reportedly extorted unsuspecting worshipers by using diabolical and fetish means.
The state NSCDC Commandant, Pedro Awili Idebo, who spoke to newsmen said the suspects arrest came after members reported their criminal activities.
They also obtained various sums of money running into millions of naira from members of their congregations under the false pretences. Section 3 (1) G expressly empowers the Corps to monitor the activities of religious bodies and trade associations.

We use this opportunity to warn the fake clergymen and women to urgently relocate from the state or face the law of the land. Idebo, however, said that the command had begun a clampdown on fraudsters in the state and would team up with other sister agencies to rid the state of criminals he said.
