The
60-year-old Kolawole was sentenced on Tuesday by Magistrate O.A.
Adedayo of the Ogba Magistrates court. The convict was the resident
pastor of the RCCG, Ikosi Paris, Ketu District, before he committed the
fraud. .

His journey to prison started
in 2016, after he approached the victim, Dr. Ugwunze and defrauded him
of the said amount of money under false pretence. The fraud took place
at his two-storey building in Gbagada, where the victim was his tenant. .

The
parties negotiated for the house for N20m and the victim paid him N9m
to effect the balance at an agreed period. He convinced the victim that
he wanted to sell the house to him because he had assisted him in the
past. .
And to prove to Ugwunze how
serious he was, he handed him all the house documents except for the
deed of agreement which he promised to process upon receipt of the full
payment. .

However, Kolawole
disappeared after he obtained the initial payment. The matter was
reported to the police and he was arrested, then dragged to court. The
court found him guilty and sentenced him to 18 months imprisonment. .

Meanwhile,
it was gathered that Kolawole is still facing another criminal charge
before another court in Lagos for forgery. He was said to have forged
the medical report of the Gbagada General Hospital to misleed the court
that he was sick.
