The Abia Police Command has reported that a notorious thief known as “Bouncer” was electrocuted while stealing from a church in Aba.
“Bouncer” was electrocuted while attempting to steal the church’s electrical appliances and other equipment, according to SP Geoffrey Ogbonna, the Abia Command Police PRO.
Despite the fact that the police did not have his genuine identity, Ogbonna said his body had been deposited in a mortuary.
On Saturday midnight, the event occurred at St Luke’s Anglican Church, Agbarevo Street, off Omuma Road, in Eziukwu-Asa-Okpuaja, Aba South LGA.
A church employee who requested anonymity said they had logged multiple robbery instances on the church grounds, but no one had ever been apprehended.
Bouncer was heard shouting ‘oh Jesus’ inside the Church at midnight on Saturday, April 30,” he claimed.
He claimed that they recovered the street Urchin’s body early on Sunday morning, validating suspicions that the thief resided near the church.
He claimed the dead jumped into the church grounds through the back gate, dismantled other equipment, and then cut cables when power was restored, electrocuting himself.
“In recent years, this church has seen a number of theft occurrences.
“Through their robbing methods, the thieves have made a shambles of God’s house.” We have been living on God’s kindness. Nothing is secure in this place. Even the roofing sheets were not spared.
“The church suffered a loss of millions of Naira in recently installed roofing sheets. We’ve lost hundreds of thousands of naira worth of plastic chairs and seats.
“The most recent one that astonished everyone was a really large goat that was used for thanksgiving by a church member.
“And the goat, which was worth about N150,000, was kept in the church compound but was taken the next day.” Can you fathom the desperation?
“We noticed the robber jumped inside the church compound and knocked down some blocks while doing his thing.
“I am not pleased with his death. I wish he had lived long enough to repent, but this should serve as a lesson to others.
His body was discovered early this morning (Sunday) and reported to Aba’s Central Police Station.
“It’s a big shame. “It’s time for people to stop committing evil,” he remarked.
