Robbers Snatch N.8 Million From Anglican Bishop

From All Africa- (if I did the conversion right its a little over $5000 US.)

A four-man gang of armed robbers Monday burgled the Bishop's Court, the Anglican Diocese of Asaba in Delta State, taking away N800,000 and other valuables.

The bishop, Rt. Rev. Festus Mogekwu, and his wife were held at gun point inside their bedroom by the hoodlums at about 1 am who operated for about three hours. The bishop's three handsets, marriage rings, shirts, two lap-top computers and other valuables were also snatched during the operation. He said the suspects who brandished dangerous weapons, ransacked the mission house, shouting "where is the money?" and left with N800,000.

He said as soon as they cut down the burglary proof of his living room, they were asked to lie flat on the floor before they tied their hands and legs. He said the police and other security men in the court where brutalized by the robbers before they escaped through the fence.
