The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) of Ogun State Police Command, Abimbola Oyeyemi on Saturday said the remaining four Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) pastors abducted along Ijebu Ode have been rescued.
Concise News understands that the PPRO disclosed this to Channels Television on Saturday afternoon while confirming that the victims are rescued unhurt.
However, Concise News had earlier reported that the command had rescued the only woman among the RCCG pastors unhurt in the morning.
The General Overseer of the RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, had on Friday 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.
Meanwhile, while addressing his congregation during the vigil service, Adeboye said investigations by the police had shown that it was only one pastor of the church that was kidnapped alongside four other persons.
He was quoted as saying, “People have been taunting me and challenging me that since I hear from God how come this is happening to your church pastors.
“I want to say it has been confirmed that only one pastor of the church was kidnapped along with four other people. That does not reduce from the weight of the incidence, however.”
“The church will continue to pray for the release of all those who have been kidnapped”, he said.
The pastors kidnapped are Chidioze Eluwa, Chiemela Iroha, Okoro Ohowukwe, Ndubuizi Owuabueze, and Ibeleji Chidinma.
