As if through divine intervention, Lawal Kabir was arrested after observing the Jumat prayers on Friday, a day he says he gives robbery a rest.

A self-proclaimed devout Muslim, Kabir says he does not commit any crimes on holy days, but after his plumbing business went south, all other days are fair game for shenanigans.
