Revealed! Police names five Igbos kidnapped @Ogbere, hope raises for RCCG – ITREALMS

Ogun Police Command has identified five Igbos among those kidnapped on Thursday evening at J3/J4 Area, Ogbere, along the Benin-Ijebu-Ode-Sagamu Expressway, on their way to Lagos, reports ITREALMS.

The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, 
ITREALMS recalled, had on Friday, disclosed that five ministers of the church were kidnapped on their way to the ministers’ conference in Ogun State.

The five passengers, ITREALMS gathered were travelling from the Eastern Nigeria before the incident at J3/J4 Ogbere. They included Chidioze Eluwa, Chiemela Iroha, Okoro Ohowukwe, Ndubuizi Owuabueze, and Ibeleji Chidinma.

According to the Police in a press statement available to ITREALMS and endorsed by the Public Relations Officer in Osun State, Abimbola Oyeyemi, the abductors reportedly emerged from the forest and forcefully stopped a commercial vehicle with registration number KW 230 XA belonging to Abia Line Transport Company and took the passengers into the forest.

Oyeyemi, also disclosed the Commissioner of Police would lead the rescue operation team, with all the tactical operations in the Command.

The abductors, he said, numbering about 10, used the J3 Forest at Ogbere as their hideout, which is some 114 kilometres away from Lagos destination.

Part of the press statement read:

“On the 1st of August 2019, at about 3:30 pm, the Ogun State Police Command received information that a commercial vehicle with registration number KW 230 XA belonging to Abia Line Transport Company was coming from the Eastern part of the country, heading towards Lagos.

“On getting to J3 area of Ogbere, some hoodlums numbering about 10 suddenly came out of the forest and forcefully stopped the vehicle.

“Five among the passengers, namely, Chidioze Eluwa, Chiemela Iroha, Okoro Ohowukwe, Ndubuizi Owuabueze, and Ibeleji Chidinma, were abducted and taken to the forest.

“The Commissioner of Police, Bashir Makama, is leading the operation to rescue the victims, with operatives from the Command’s tactical squads combing the entire area.

“The hideout of the hoodlums has been geo-located, but our men are trying to be tactical and professional in order not to jeopardise the lives of the victims we are making efforts to rescue.

“With the operation going on presently, we are rest assured that the victims will soon regain their freedom and the hoodlums will definitely be brought to book,” he assured.

Although Oyeyemi could not confirm if those abducted were RCCG pastors as at press time.

ITREALMS recalls that earlier Friday, Pastor Adeboye, told his church that five ministers on their way to the ministers’ conference were kidnapped on Thursday.

Speaking at the Church Ministers’ Conference at the Redemption Camp in Ogun State, Pastor Adeboye appealed to the congregation to pray for the release of the captives.

“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 bemoaned.
