They were 3 who came all the way from Oshodi to rob a church very early this morning on their way leaving pushing the stolen items, people sighted them and 2 of them flee away and this very guy stood with confidence while people were getting close think his juju will save him.
But unfortunately his juju couldn’t save him from petrol and fire, later the police and ambulance came cleaned him up and took him away.”
