An Anglican Church Knight, Sir Peter Uche, who led a 7-man robbery gang to invade an MTN mast and steal batteries, has been arrested in Ejigbo, Lagos.
PM Express reports that Uche was arrested and his Toyota 4Runner SUV was recovered with the batteries the gang had already stolen at about 3am on 19th November, 2019. .
The operation reportedly failed when the Police at Ejigbo Division led by CSP Olabisi Okuwobi, received a distress call that robbers were operating at the site of the mast.
During the robbery operation, a security man on duty was tied up and the robbers loaded twelve batteries into the vehicle they brought. One of them, Sir Peter Uche, a self confessed dismissed soldier and Knight of St Francis of the Anglican Communion, Ojo Alaba area of Lagos, was also arrested.
This news saddened the Leadership of Anglican church, who revealed their shock and confusion as to how a seemingly responsible man with such reputation and spiritual responsibility would stoop so low as to commit a crime such as robbery.
The case is still pending and the culprits will soon be charged accordingly.
