A four-man gang who specializes in breaking into churches has been arrested by the Delta state community policing (vigilante) Agbor Chapter.
The hoodlums, according our source, met their waterloo while trying to waybill the musical instruments worth millions of Naira they stole to Lagos state.
It was revealed that at the point of way billing the musical instruments that one of the drivers at motor pack started suspecting their actions which prompted him to call the vigilante group.
On sighting the security men, the miscreants allegedly took to their heels, not knowing that the paramilitary had already surrounded the area.
Our source also revealed that it was during interrogation that one of them revealed that they had during the early hour of the day (Thursday, August 27) gained access into one the Anglican churches in town, carting away its key boards, mixer, amplifiers and heavy musical instruments.
It was also learnt that it was when the vigilantes in custody of the suspected robbers got to the church premises, that the clergies in charge of the church got to know that the church has been vandalized.
We also gathered that one of the suspect is an indigene of Umunede in Ika North East local government, two claimed to be from Anambra State while one said that he was from Benue state. According to them, the one who hails from Umunede is their informant.
A source from the Police in Agbor confirmed that the suspects were in their custody and that preliminary investigation had commenced.
