A popular Lagos-based pastor, known as Rev. Praise Bassey, has been arrested by the Lagos State Criminal Investigation Department, Yaba, for duping a female contractor. Reverend
 “Bassey told the contractor that the cost of the car was N3m. She was to pay the amount into his Zenith bank account. After the money was paid, Bassey became evasive.”
Read more shocking revelation after cut:

Bassey, who runs his church, Household of Destiny, from his three-bedroom apartment at Gani Dabiri Street, Ajao Estate, was said to have collected the money in 2010 under the guise of buying the contractor a 1X35 Hyundai car.

A police source told Punch that matters came to a head when Bassey, on collecting the money, could neither provide the car nor refund the money for two years.

He said, “The contractor got to know Bassey in 2010 when he visited her home in the company with a family friend. I learnt that Bassey informed the contractor that he lived in Korea and was into car import business.”

Several months later, the contractor called to ask Bassey the price of a 1X35 Huyundai jeep.

The petition, which was referred to the SCID through the Lagos State Commissioner, led to Bassey’s arrest.

Somehow, Rev. Bassey was able to secure bail the same day he was arrested in 2012.

He was said to have informed the police that the money was not given to him to buy a car, but to pray for the contractor’s success in her business. He was later given bail after he promised to refund the money.

“Part of his bail conditions was that Bassey would refund the money. At first, he paid N1.25m and promised to pay the remaining N1.75m. After securing his bail, Bassey absconded.”

He was rearrested by SCID operatives who were on his trail for many weeks.

From what .com gathered, Rev Bassey is now being processed for prosecution in court.
