Man Arrested For Kidnapping Female Church Members During Night Vigil In Ondo

The state Commander of the Amotekun Corps, Akogun Adetunji Adeleye disclosed this while parading the suspect on Thursday at the headquarters of the agency in Alagbaka Akure.

According to him, the suspects stormed the church at about 11 pm on Wednesday while the vigil was ongoing, abducting four female members of the church.

He said, ”At about 11 pm, we received a distressed call that some hoodlums kidnapped the worshippers who were in their church doing their service. It was one of them (Igbekele Abiodun) that first entered the church and asked the worshippers to stand up before the other members of the gang entered. They abducted four female members of the church and molested them.

“Our men immediately swung into action and we were able to rescue the victims and arrested one of the suspects (Igbekele Abiodun). Our men are still on the trail of the remaining suspects. We have brought the victims to our office and we have given them medical treatment.”

Adeleye stated that the victims were rescued inside a forest in Ado Ekiti, Ekiti State around 1.30 am on Thursday, adding that the arrested suspect dressed as a woman when he was arrested.

One of the rescued victims, Mrs Eunice Taiwo said the bandits collected their money and phones while kidnapping them. She expressed appreciation to the Amotekun Corps for the efforts made to rescue them.

The Amotekun commander, who noted that the corps had arrested 75 suspected criminals with two weeks, said the corps had commenced their prosecution.

KanyiDaily had also published a video showing the moment some gunmen invaded a Seventh-Day Adventist church and kidnapped a pastor and three of his members while live service was ongoing.
