The thieves beat up and gagged a security guard at the complex before ransacking the bishop's office and taking various items.

"It was a very sad scene. Bishop Davis wept; he threw himself on the ground. (Other) grown men wept at the altar. It was a terrible scene," an eye-witness stated.

Reports from various sources indicate that the four gunmen entered the church compound and tied up and gagged the security guard on duty.

The men then cut the grill, ripped off the office door and ransacked the entire office before leaving with several valuable items.

"I am glad there was no life lost, but the gunmen took a lot of stuff from the office in the early morning," said a member of the congregation.

"We had a service (on Sunday), but there was no preaching. We had the singing with the choir, but the live service was not broadcast (externally, as normal)," explained the source.

"There is something seriously wrong in the country when gunmen can rob a church that does so much powerful and great works for the people," declared the ardent churchgoer.
