The holy book says “vengeance is the Lord’s”!

But this church is not willing to wait till “judgment day” to get justice.

A 29-year-old man, Ricab Vondip, was on Thursday sentenced to two months imprisonment by a Karmo Grade 1 Area Court, Abuja, for stealing a musical keyboard valued at 400,000 Naira from a church.

The prosecutor, Dalhatu Zannah told the court that Vondip committed the offence on December 24, 2016 at the Salem Church, Utako, Abuja.

He said that Pastor Joel Madaki of Salem Church Abuja, reported the matter at the Utako Police Station on March 8.

Zannah said Vondip was invited by his friend James Silas to attend a church service, but he dishonestly stole their Yamaha keyboard.

The prosecutor said that the convict was arrested and he confessed to have sold the keyboard at 24,000 Naira.

The convict, who was arraigned on a count charge of theft, pleaded guilty and begged the court to have mercy on him.

The judge, Mr Abubakar Sadiq was kind enough to give the convict an option of 10,000 Naira fine, and warned him to desist from committing such in future.
