46-year-old pastor identified as Archie Good Morrow, was arrested after he duped 499 women and absconded with their money.
The pastor had reportedly asked each of the women to make a deposit of N70,000 into his account, promising to give them a loan of N150,000 after payment.
After receiving a total sum of about N3,592,800, Good Morrow stopped taking their calls and eventually disappeared from his area and was later caught in Oke Aro, Ogun state, following a tip off the women got.
Some of the women accompanied by some policemen from the Pen Cinema police station in Agege, Lagos, picked him up from his hideout and placed him under arrest.
He was arraigned in court where he pleaded not guilty and eventually granted bail. He is however being remanded at the Kirikiri prison, pending when his bail conditions will be met.
