The items were dug out at the entrance of the church, the floor area and the pulpit side on Wednesday, June 26, 2019 by masons.

On his part, the owner of the building until he sold it, said to reporters about the one to whom he rented the building: "Whenever I came around I noticed that the entrance of the building has been cemented anew with carpet on it so until I broke into the church I never knew these things have been planted here. I suspect he used it to worship.”
