The thief after he was arrested

"It can only be God! 6 days for the thief and 1 day for God to reveal and vindicate. Here is Mr Elijah Nehemiah Sunday who has been looting my properties in Ekpeneobo.
As usual, he entered on Saturday evening by 11pm as he confessed and waited to do his havoc when my neighbour leaves for church but as God would have it, it was raining cat and dog so he decided to fill my drum wt water before heading to church.
Behold he locked himself inside but there was no room for escape. My God is at work. I will recover all."
