Six armed robbers reportedly robbed the entire residents of Emmanuel Baptist Church Cathedral, Sabo Oke in Ilorin, Kwara State of their belongings.
A source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the pastorate was robbed of laptops, trinkets and unspecified amount of money. The bandits were said to have come in search of the proceeds of the funds raiser of the church which took place on Sunday.
They were said to have scaled the fence of the church from the back, overpowered the five private guards on duty and tied them with ropes. One of the security guards, who pleaded anonymity, said the robbers ordered one of them to lead them to the church’s strongroom.
He said, “The robbers use diggers, sledge hammers and an axe to break the safe but did not find any money there. “The disappointed robbers ordered one of us to lead them to the vicarage. The robbers then ordered the vicar (names withheld) to bring out the church money or they would shoot him dead.”
