In Ogun: Police locate where kidnappers kept five RCCG pastors, reveal next action


The Ogun Police Command has confirmed the kidnapping of five persons by gunmen at J3/J4 Area, Ogbere, on the Benin-Ijebu-Ode-Sagamu expressway.



DAILY POST had reported that the General Overseer of the RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, announced the abduction of the clerics on Friday at the Redeemed Camp along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.

Adeboye, while charging the congregation to pray for the release of the abductees, said the abduction took place on Thursday along the Ijebu-Ode axis.

He was quoted as saying, “As a father, how do you think I should feel to hear that five of my children have been kidnapped while on their way to attend the Ministers Conference?” he asked.

But speaking with journalists on Friday in Abeokuta, the police spokesman in Ogun State, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said the command could not ascertain whether or not the captives were pastors of RCCG.



According to him, the victims were on their way from the eastern part of the country when the commercial bus conveying them was blocked on Thursday night by the gunmen at a location between Ogun and Ondo states boundary.

The police spokesman said that the gunmen after forcing the vehicle to a halt, whisked away four men and a woman into the forest, but left behind the driver, a sick passenger and his wife in the vehicle.

Oyeyemi said the state’s Commissioner of Police, Bashir Makama, had personally led the police rescue team to the location.

“Through surveillance, we have got to know their location but we don’t want to attack them so that we won’t put the victims’ lives in danger.

“By the grace of God, we will rescue the victims,” NAN quoted him as saying.
