Sunday 24th of April 2021 became the day of “judgement” for a particular car thief who was caught while trying to steal a car within the premises of a big church in Akwa Ibom state. Press reports revealed that the notorious car thief was nabbed while attempting to steal a certain Toyota Camry sedan parked inside the church premises in the Afaha Oku area of Uyo, the capital city of Akwa Ibom.

According to information gathered from reliable sources, the suspected car thief had already unlocked the Toyota Camry sedan successfully with a type of master key when he was apprehended. He was said to be almost about to abscond with the car when passersby and residents in the area noticed his suspicious criminal activities and pounced on him.
A certain Oduononwi Abidiak who witnessed the entire “drama” said that the Toyota Camry sedan belongs to one of the church visitors who joined the church service that day just to attend the dedication of a member’s child. He says that the name of the church where the incident happened is Hill Top Church of Christ, Afaha Oku, Uyo. Oduononwi Abidiak posted photos of the suspected car thief on Facebook as he claims that youths around the church community gave the suspect a serious beating before handing him over to the police.

On a coincidentally funny note, just a few weeks ago, a certain thief similarly got apprehended after he was stuck in the wall of a church he had gone to rob. The news of this unfortunate car thief really went viral because he was caught on camera pleading with people to rescue him from his stuck position in the wall of the church. Watch this video below to get the full gist surrounding this incident.
