Oct 23, 2012 – Ogun State: Armed Robbers Attack Church, 3 Police Officers Killed

A notorious 15-man armed robbery gang who invaded the premises of Apostolic Church Mission House in Ijemo Agbadu, Abeokuta Ogun State, Nigeria on Monday morning at about 1:45am killed three police officers.

In the robbery operation that lasted close to an hour, 2 other church workers were severely injured.

According to an anonymous source, the armed robbers acted on an information received from an insider in the church that a large amount of cash was kept in the Mission House.

The armed robbers who accessed the mission house through the roof destroyed the whole building.

Pastor Jacob Adeotan, a resident Pastor of attacked church said the robbers held residents hostage while the operation lasted.

“As you can see, they broke the burglary proof, gained access into many apartments before ransacking,” the pastor said. “They operated for about 45 minutes, and engaged in sporadic shooting when police patrol team arrived.” – Pastor Adeotan laments

According to police sources, a Rapid Response Squad who responded to a distress call raced to the scene. On seeing the policemen, the robbers engaged them in fierce gun-battle leaving 3 officers dead while injuring two others.

Mr Muyiwa Adejobi, the spokesman for Ogun State Police who confirmed the incident said over 300 used bullets shells were recovered from the robbery scene.

He said investigations is still ongoing to arrest the robbers.

    Where is our faith.
    No Nigerian blood both at home and in diaspora would testify that he/she isnt aware of the sufferings those displaced by the flood are going through, this isnt by their making and it could be anyone in their shoes………..Where are our so called spiritual leaders, where are the soul called men of God who we contribute our offerings to on daily basis and they use to furnish their expensive and flamboyant life styles, buy new fleet of cars, service their chains of investments and even add new aircraft to their fleet, where are all these people these displaced citizens of Nigerians look up to as serving men of God and to whom they give offerings and tithes………………..Most of this displaced citizens are well respected citizens of the country who did their best in their environments and helped in the growth of the ministry in their environs where the so called leaders take the glory and because of the unfortunate incident
    that made them refugees in their own fathers land everyone is quiet on their predicament and all we read on the news on a daily basis is stories of harassment, molestations, death, starvation and what have you…………….the Government cant do this alone and that’s the simple truth that everyone knows…………….Where are those spiritual fathers who preach one thing and do the other because now is the time to practice what you preach not towards December period because crusade is near they come out to give cheap donation to catch the eyes of the masses i say to all you spiritual leaders now is time to test your faith as most of these displaced Nigerians have contributed willingly to the growth of your ministries not talking about any in particular but talking about every ministry to standup to the work of god and prove that they aint using us to do business but willing to do the will of God which is helping the needy in times of difficulties instead of lavishing the same money the masses contributed for the hand work of God in luxuries………………….i REST MY CASE
