The congregation at the Foursquare Gospel Church, Magboro, Ogun State, were stunned on Sunday after a suspected thief sneaked into the church and stole a motorcycle belonging to one of the worshippers.
But for the alertness of security guards on the church premises, the suspect would have escaped with the motorcycle.
The guards were said to have mobilised some other motorcycle riders in the church, who gave the suspect a chase and arrested him as he was about riding onto the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
Upon his arrest, the suspect, who identified himself as Raymon and later Ramoni, said he took to robbery because he was hungry.
A member of the church, Ogungbola Adenekan, said the incident happened around 1pm while the men’s fellowship was on.
