Church nab fake Seminarian car thief


35 years old, Gabriel Okani, who disguised himself as a Catholic Seminarian, and a member of car theft syndicate, has been apprehended by the Imo State Police command after he was caught trying to steal a Camry car at the Assumpta Cathedral church, Owerri, last Sunday.


Catholic faithfuls had emptied into the Cathedral to witness the ordination of Priests by the Archbishop, Most Revd Anthony Obinna.

The fake seminarian had wore the white Catholic  suntan to beat security and avoid any suspicions, but unfortunately for him, he was caught.

Gabriel Okani was caught while fiddling with a Camry car that attracted the attention of other Catholic faithfuls, who upon interrogation failed to explain his mission, and that he had impersonated a Seminarian.

It took the timely intervention of security operatives before irate worshippers could descend the free beatings. He was immediately taken to the Archbishop who was still conducting the ordination mass.

Dr Obinna had momentarily stopped the ordination mass to interrogate the suspect who disclosed that he was part of a syndicate, who were waiting outside for him to bring out the car.

A worshiper in the Church told newsmen that the suspect confessed that he was a serial car thief and specialized in stealing Toyota Camry products.

Meanwhile, Imo State Police Spokesman, Andrew Enwerem confirmed the development, adding that he was in police custody, providing useful information about the activities of the gang.
