Two suspected armed robbers have been arrested for allegedly burgling a Redeemed Christian Church of God parish in Sagamu, Ogun State.
The suspects, Fidelis Francis, 28, and Lukman Jimoh, 40, are accused of scaling the fence before breaking into the church using an iron bar at about 2am on Monday, June 7.
When they were done with the operation, they hid in a bush. However, the police, having received a distress call about the attack, arrived at the venue and laid ambush for them.
5 hours after hiding in the bush, they emerged and made their way to the vehicle they parked close to the bush and officials of the state police command arrested them.
The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, disclosed this in a statement on Wednesday, June 9.
