A suspected armed robber identified as Terkaa Tsamber has been caught stealing offering and other valuable items worth thousands of Naira in Dunamis church, Makurdi Benue State.
The robber who was reported to have walked into the church premises and made his way to the pastor’s office was sighted by a little young girl who saw the man with a gun and alerted for help.
The Robber who tried to escape jumped a fence and ran to an uncompleted building. The robber was reported to have been armed with a gun that had no bullet.
He was chased by church members who traced him to a nearby building belonging to a top politician where he was caught.
The Church’s resident pastor, Joseph Idakwoji explained that he noticed his office has been burgled by a thief last Friday Worship and Wonder’s Night stealing items including handsets, offering, cartons of Five alive and stabilizer, he said,
“When I came to the church office yesterday (Saturday) after our last Worship and Wonder’s Night, I discovered that thieves invaded the church and made away with things from my office. So, I prayed and told God that I am not going to lock the office back and that God should manifest his power and glory by allowing whoever that broke into my office to come back and steal again in the day time so that he would be caught.
“Behold, a few minutes into the third service, I was on the altar conducting the service when I heard some members of the church shouting and screaming ‘thief! Thief!!. He was caught and brought to the church. The area boys wanted to apply jungle justice on him but I prevented them and called the police, who came and picked him.”
