The 6-man robbery gang reportedly robbed the entire resident pastorate living in Emmanuel Baptist Church Cathedral, Sabo Oke in Ilorin, Kwara State of their belongings.

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 commandeered 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.

He added that the robbers reluctantly released the vicar and later robbed the entire vicarage and left after operating for about three hours.
