Gunmen attacked the Celestial Church Christ, SBJ Oshofa at Wasimi in Ewekoro Local Government Area of Ogun State, and kidnapped two members.
The victims are; Oluwaseun Ajose, an assistant priest of the parish, and Dagunro Ayobami, a Sunday school teacher.
According to report, the gunmen numbering four, broke into the church around 11pm on Monday, June 13, and took away the worshippers.
It was learnt that the church is located at an isolated area, which allowed the hoodlums to operate unhindered.
A joint security team of the police and local vigilantes have been combing the forest in area in search of the victims.
The Shepherd of the parish, Oluwatomisin Ehuwaojomo, confirmed the incident on Tuesday, June 14. He said the kidnappers have contacted the church and demanded N50 million ransom.
The Parish Shepherd explained;
“When my assistant called me almost two hours after they left, the kidnappers initially refused to speak with me but on his third attempt, they spoke with me and requested for N50 million ransom,”
“I told them that, I am a servant of God and I don’t receive salary. I have spoken to the commissioner of police and they are on it.
Meanwhile, a member of the church, Denis tweeted that the gunmen he claimed to be herdsmen, allegedly tortured a pregnant woman but left her because she couldn’t work.
