Three men have reportedly been arrested while attempting to steal goats from a restaurant owner.
The suspects, who disclosed that they were returning from a vigil at the time of the incident, and cannot explain how the two goats got into their possession, were arrested in Amarata, a suburb of Yenagoa, Bayelsa State.
According to Vanguard, the suspects were reportedly caught while trying to make away with the stolen animals, after they had successfully stolen two others from the pen.
An eyewitness reveals to Vanguard that the suspects were caught by a resident of the compound, with one of them holding a bible, claiming that they were Christians returning from a church vigil service.
The resident is said to have raised an alarm, alerting the local vigilante group in the area who later arrested the suspects and handed them to the police.
The owner of the livestock has since recovered her property from the police station.
