A man identified as Wasiu Kamarudeen, has been arrested by the Lagos State Police Command after he attempted to rob a church.
Wasiu who is 19 was arrested in possession of one locally-made short gun with a live-cartridge.
He had arrived at the Jakande open field venue of a three-day retreat organised by the St. Patrick Catholic Renewal Church around 6:20am with three others.
The vigilant church members had alerted the police to the presence of three suspicious characters who had been dropped off on a bike.
Although the passengers mingled with the crowd, policemen deployed were able to apprehend Kamarudeen who allegedly had a locally made short gun with a live cartridge on him.
