Church burglar dies after getting stuck during operation

File photo: Worshipers also said they had forgiven the thief but expressed concern over rising cases of crimes targeting churches.

A church burglar has died after getting stuck in a church’s burglar-proof during an overnight operation in Abule Egba, Lagos.

The suspect, had Wednesday last week successfully burgled an RCCG in the area. However, luck ran out on him on Sunday night, when he tried burgling another church at No 1, Arepo Street, Awori.

He was apparently trying to squeeze himself through the burglar-proof, when he snapped his neck. He was later discovered, yesterday evening, when the pastor came for a programme. His phone, with its torchlight on, was also discovered beside him.
