Assistant Pastor and Sunday school teacher Abducted in Ogun State, Nigeria

Assistant Pastor and Sunday school teacher Abducted in Ogun State, Nigeria

Gunmen abducted an assistant pastor and a Sunday school teacher in a raid on a church service in Ogun State, south-western Nigeria.

Assistant pastor Oluwaseun Ajose and Dagunro Ayobami were taken from the church building in Wasimi, a rural area of Ewekoro Local Government Area, shortly before midnight on June 13.

A church member, Oluwajesse Sunmade, said that four masked men armed with guns, a sword and “a big stick” beat the two men and dragged them away.

He added that the kidnappers also wanted to take him and a pregnant woman from the church, but “the pregnant woman told them that she was ill and couldn’t walk; they left her alone and I managed to escape.”

Abimbola Oyeyemi, the spokesman of Ogun State Police, said that officers were tracking down the kidnappers.

“We are on their trail, we are tracing them,” he said. “It is our duty to rescue those people that were abducted and we are doing everything possible to do that.”

“People should be more vigilant because security is everybody’s business and our people are supposed to play their own part,” explained Oyeyemi.

“We have given a statement before now that whenever you want to have a vigil, especially when it is in an isolated place, try as much as possible to inform the direct police station close to that place so that they will be having constant patrol of the area.”

Christian-majority southern Nigeria has historically been safer than the northern and Middle Belt regions, though instability is increasing.

Ogun shares a border with Ondo State, where earlier this month at least 40 worshippers were killed as gunmen launched an armed assault against a Sunday church service.
