The siren of a patrolling police team was what it took to save the day following a robbery attack on the International Central Gospel Church (ICGC), Calvary Temple.

The robbers made an attempt to steal three 42 inches plasma screens which are normally used for projections during service.
However, a siren from a Police patrol team around Sakumono and its environs got the assailants shaken and subsequently to flee the scene.
They, however, made away with two of the television sets, with the third one dropping to the ground and getting damaged as the robbers tried to escape.
The report claims that the robbers sneaked into the church on the blind side of the security man who was alone at the time.
The incident meant that the church was left with no other option than to use only one television set for projecting Sunday’s service to the congregation.
The report further suggests that the head pastor of the Church Rev Anthony Cudjoe is said to have given the robbers 13 days to surrender and repent or face the wrath of God.
