Metro [Photo] EFCC Arrests Pastor For N200m Fraud

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has arrested one Jonathan Ibinabo Alatoru, a self-acclaimed pastor and Chief Executive Officer, CEO, Chemtronics Nigeria Limited, for conspiracy, forgery and obtaining money by false pretense to the tune of N200m (two hundred million naira).

The suspect, who had earlier jumped the administrative bail granted him by the Commission, was arrested by operatives of EFCC in a sting operation on Thursday, November 26, 2015 in Abuja.


The 55-year old suspect had been awarded a contract by the Ministry of Niger Delta Affairs, Abuja for the construction of a skill acquisition centre at Igualeba, Orhiomwon LGA, in Edo State, to the tune of N1.7billion.

The contract, which was supposed to be completed within a year, was, however, terminated in 2011 when he could not complete the structure 18 months after.

The suspect will soon be charged to court.
