Police in Ogun State have arrested a former security guard of a church, Mela Samaila for allegedly breaking into the church auditorium and stealing the offering box with an undisclosed amount of money.

The suspect was arrested after the security men attached to the church alerted the policemen that the suspect had gained entrance into the church and made away with the church offering box.

The Police Public Relations Officer, Mr Abimbola Oyeyemi said that the DPO Ojodu Abiodun division, Mr Eyitayo Akinluwade mobilized his patrol team to the scene, combed the area and succeeded in arresting the suspect with the help of the security men of the church and the offering box was recovered from him.
