Oyeyemi said while the police were combing the surrounding bushes, they sighted a Lexus Saloon car marked KJA 469 EP, parked at a get-away position not too far away from the church.
"The operatives suspected that the vehicle might have been parked by the suspects, mounted surveillance in the area, waiting for who will be coming for the vehicle at that odd hour.
"After waiting patiently for about five hours, the two came, and while trying to move the vehicle away, the policemen swooped on them and got them apprehended," it was said.
On searching the vehicle, Oyeyemi said two iron bars similar to the ones that were earlier recovered at the scene of the crime were discovered in the car.
