The suspect has allegedly been stealing from the school for many years without anyone noticing. However, his luck ran out recently.

In his reaction, the Chancellor of the institution,  Bishop David Oyedepo, mentioned that the accountant’s lifestyle has been somewhat “riotous”.

He is said to have acquired a good number of exotic cars but had been hiding them in one of the houses he built with stolen money, around Lekki area of Lagos State.

Reports equally revealed that the suspect lived the school’s premises, together with his wife.
