A suspected armed robber was caught playing keyboard in a church several hours after he had led a two-man gang robbery operation.
When 23-year-old Emmanuel Ndidi walked into church on Saturday, September 16, 2017, other members of the said church had no idea that the person handling their keyboard was a wanted armed robber.
According to reports, Ndidi had led a two-man gang to an operation at the Sunny Ojougboh area of Agbor, Delta state, earlier in the same night, leaving the residents of the area in fear.
Following his arrest by members of the Agbor Gha Ihun security, Ndidi who claimed he recently returned from Ghana where he was a bus driver, blamed the devil saying he became a robber because he needed to survive upon his return.
Ndidi who pleaded for forgiveness while promising to never steal again, mentioned his partner, 23-year-old Chuks Okpehoro, who he said joined him to steal four mobile phones and other items.
While admitting to his role in the robbery, Chuks said he was a school dropout and even though he had been into crime, had been invited to partake in this particular robbery by Ndidi.
Emmanuel had reportedly been caught while playing the keyboard in his church in Ime-Obi, during a vigil service held that night.
