A 30-year-old cross-border robbery suspect, John Godwin, has revealed that he was arrested because he forgot to recite Psalm 121 before going for his last operation. He added that it was because God wanted the police to arrest him that he forgot to the read Psalm 121 on that fateful day.

Four other suspects – Solomon Adeniji (27), Tosin Adeoye (25) and two nationals of Republic of Benin, Adewale Adebolaji (45) and Moyori Sule (42) – were arrested alongside with Godwin.

The Zonal Police Public Relations Officer (ZPPRO), CSP Dolapo Badmos, said the suspects used to snatch vehicles in Nigeria drive them to the Benin Republic and hand them over to a receiver identified only as Alhaji.

It was learnt that Godwin was a former convict. In an interview with newsmen, he said:
Quote
“I was once sent to Ibara Prison in Abeokuta for stealing something at a market in Abeokuta. It was in the prison that I came across Tosin.

My parents told me when I was born a pastor and prophesied that I would become a pastor. When I was in the prison I used to preach and pray with my colleagues. It is the devil that drove me to crime.

Whenever we are going on the operation, I usually read Psalm 121. I believe reading the Psalms would give me protection throughout the operation period.

On a fateful day, I was arrested, I forgot to read the Psalms before leaving home. I believe God wanted the police to arrest me so as to quit robbery.”
