Shocking Confession of Lagos Armed Robber: I Paid Tithe After Every Operation | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f


A 24-year old armed robbery suspect, Mr. Tajudeen Onifara has revealed the secret behind his success in the underworld for nine years during which he robbed many people of their money and other possessions.

He confessed to the police that he was dutifully paying his tithe to his church, Christ Living Ministry, Lagos Island, as commanded in the Bible after every successful robbery operation in Lagos, western Nigeria.

Onifara was arrested in a hotel with his girlfriend by men of the anti-robbery squad of the state police command after nine years of robbing people.

The father of two said he paid his tithe regularly because he believed that as a Christian God always bless a faithful tither.

He disclosed that after every successful operation, he would remove 10 percent of the money he stole from people and pay as tithe to church.

Onifara attributed his success in crime for nine years to the fact that he paid his tithe regularly as commanded by God in Malachi chapter 3 verse 10 and 11. The verses, he said, mandated Christians to give 10 percent of their earnings as tithe to the church.

He said he started stealing at the age of 15 and specialised in robbing customers of banks with locally made cut-to-size pistol before he graduated to a big time armed robber.

He said his major breakthrough in the underworld occurred when he robbed a woman who withdrew N2m from a bank in Lagos.

He said she was about entering her car when he accosted her and pointed a toy gun at her. The woman quickly surrendered the money to him.

“I pretended as if I wanted to assist her. She did not know that I was an armed robber and when we got to where she parked her car, I pointed a gun at her and she quietly handed the money to me. After snatching the money I escaped on a bike with my friend,” he stated.

He disclosed that he used part of the money to buy a sophisticated weapon after removing his tithe.

On what he did with all the money he stole over the years, he explained that he used the money to enrol his children in one of the best schools in Lagos and opened a supermarket at Idumagbo on Lagos Island.

He added that he used a substantial part of the money to take care of himself and his girlfriends.

On how he was arrested, he said he was having fun with his girlfriend in Ibadan at a popular hotel when SARS men arrested him.

When asked how he felt now that he was arrested, he replied: “I know that robbery is a serious and risky ‘business’ that can cut short one’s life. If I am given another chance, I will abandon it and engage in a legitimate business.”

Police sources said Onifara who is now in custody at SARS will soon be charged to court.

  1. The Bible said anyone that don't pay Tithe is a thief, what this guy went and steal someone's Tithe money and give Tithe to the Church?

  2. indeed, robber tither. am sure your Pastor told u it is a sin to steal or rob... be not not deceived God is not mocked u will reap what u sow

  3. pastors pls with due respect forget dis prophetic miracle and teach children of God d word of dat we can not misunderstand d word of jesus christ.thanks.chusy

  4. am sure Pastors told them, They didn't listen. Who doesn't know that stealing is a sin? The bible is clear and straight forward, easy to understand.

  5. Let him that stole steal no more but let him work his hand a legitimate work that he may have to give to the needy!!

  6. They no longer preach the crucification of christ,I hate these pastors,but my friend,dear supermaket owner,you must reap what you have sown

  7. In a country supposedly full of highly educated people, how has it come that they allow themselves especially the women to be deceived by the greedy and unscrupulous self titled Vicars who regularly sites .Malachi chapter 3 verse 10 and 11 as the Biblical source of God's demand for the Payment of tithes.

    Firstly, Malachi was a Jewish Prophet and not a Christian as he was 1000 years before Christ and Christianity. Tithes was never mentioned by Christ. The closest was when he told his followers to give unto Caesar what is Caesar's meaning paying taxes.

    The Jews and their Prophets never tolerated Jesus and his Apostles and were out to destroy them and the new Religion called Christianity. How come these thieving Nigerian Pastors keep referring these gullible and greedy women to the parts of the Old Testament (which is basically the Jewish History and has nothing with Christianity) except to trace the family roots of Jesus and later Prophet Mohammed)

    I go to Baptist church and has never been called to pay Tithes. Like other Normal churches like the Methodist, Roman Catholic and Church of England, contribution to the church is purely voluntary and its on the basis of affordability and means.


  8. Spirit.
