Some men suspected to be kidnappers were arrested during a service at the popular Celestial Church of Christ, Wonderland Parish. The church is situated at Alaguntan along New Ipaja Road, in Iyana Ipaja area of Lagos.
It was revealed that the actions of the men were foiled by some vigilant worshipers. The men had sneaked in quietly; and they disguised as members of the church.
Their plan was, however, aborted by the mother of one of the children they had targeted. The woman raised the alarm when she noticed them. They had been trying to lure one of the children out of the church auditorium.
One member of the gang was subsequently arrested by the worshipers while the remaining two escaped.
The suspect who had not been identified was beaten up by angry worshipers before he was handed over to the police.
