An 18-year old church worker, Elikor Ehud, has been arrested for allegedly conspiring with a coworker, Lucky, to sneak into Divine Chosen Vine Church, Ejigbo, Lagos State, break the seed offering box and cart away all the money inside.

The G.O, Dr. Godwin Chukwudire, was shocked on Monday morning when he entered church to collect the seed sown by members during Church service, only to meet an empty offering box.

The alleged theft was reported to the Police at Ejigbo Division. The Police officers, led by CSP Olabisi Okuwobi, moved into action and arrested Ehud while his accomplice, Lucky, escaped and is now at large.

The suspect, Ehud, confessed to the Police and explained that the thought to steal the money came to him when the Church organized special prayer and he was in the prayer camp for five days before they carried out the operation.

“After we stole the money, we lodged in a hotel and I used part of the money to buy phone worth N120,000, clothes and other needs before I escaped to River State,” he revealed.

However, Ehud said that the money was not up to N1.5m as claimed by the Church because he got his share of N370,000, while Lucky got N300,000. He said the money was squandered at the hotel where they lodged.
