A young man who decided to raid the house of God by repeatedly robbing a church, tasted the other side of Lagosians when he was caught in the act and given the beating of his life, almost to the point of death.
The incident happened after luck ran out of the perennial church robber as he was caught while carting away electronics from a church located at Kayode Adebanji Street, NNPC, Ejigbo area of the state.
The criminal is reported to have stolen Plasma TVs, microphones, keyboards, generators, lighting materials as well as offering and tithes, from the church several times.
But he ran out of luck when he scaled the fence of the church to steal a split unit air conditioner. He was sighted while dragging the AC from the wall and nabbed.
He allegedly confessed to breaking into the church several times and stealing their items.
He was then beaten to a pulp and was almost lynched but for the intervention of the pastor who made sure he was handed over to the police.
