Two caught for stealing car from Lagos church


   The police have arrested two suspected car thieves, Bamidele Adebayo and Hakeem Taofik, for allegedly stealing a Toyota Corolla car at the Shagari Estate in the Ipaja area of Lagos State.

   It was learnt that the suspects removed the car around 1pm from an unnamed church’s car park, while the Sunday service was ongoing. A member of the church, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told Punch Metro that the robbers pretended to be members of the church, sat and listened to the sermon.

  He stated that the suspects might have targeted the vehicle, known the owner and when the owner was likely to go out, adding that otherwise it would have been almost impossible for them to come into the church’s car park and remove the vehicle.
