Must read

The Ogun Police Command said it has rescued one of the five pastors of the Redeemed Christian Church of God who were abducted on Thursday around J3 forest on Ogbere Road, in Ijebu-East Local Government Area of the state.

The Police said the only woman among the five victims, identified as Ibelegbo Chidimma, was rescued early Saturday [August 3, 2019] morning and would soon be taken to the convention ground.

The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Abimbola Oyeyemi, disclosed this on Saturday to newsmen.

Oyeyemi said, “The Ogun State Police Command wishes to inform the general public that one of the kidnap victims, Mrs. Ibelegbo Chidimma, the only woman among them, has been rescued unhurt.

“The woman, who is a deaconess of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, regained her freedom in the early hours of today, 3rd of August, 2019, and she is currently at the Command’s headquarters in Abeokuta, where an arrangement is being made to take her to the Redemption Camp.”

“Efforts are on top gear to rescue the remaining victims, as the kidnappers who kept them in separate locations were changing their locations from time to time within the forest,” speaking on the fate of the remaining four victims, Oyeyemi said.

“The Command hereby wishes to assure members of the public that the remaining victims will soon be rescued.”

Enoch Adeboye, the general overseer of the RCCG, announced the abduction on Friday, August 2, 2019, while giving a talk at the Redeemed Camp along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.

Pastor Adeboye charged the congregation to pray for the release of the abductees as he said that this is the first time such incident of that magnitude was happening.

“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 queried.
