At the least five persons were abducted in the early hours of Saturday in Ekiti State. The abducted persons included a pastor, simply identified as Ojo, and his driver, Jimoh as well as three other victims.
Ekiti State Police Command spokesman, Alberto Adeyemi, said the victims were picked by their assailants while traveling in two vehicles at a spot along Ise Ekiti road, in Ise/Orun Local Government Area of the state.
The Police spokesperson added that: “The motive of the abduction was not immediately known as those kidnapped are believed not to belong to the category of well-known or wealthy individuals in the society.”
Adeyemi said two of the abducted persons had been rescued while his men were on the trail of the hoodlums to rescue the remaining victims.
