The gunmen who kidnapped three worshippers on Sunday at the Cherubim and Seraphim Church, along Railway Station, Obada-Oko, in the Ewekoro Local Government Area of Ogun State, have demanded a ransom of N6 million for their release.
The hoodlums had invaded the church and kidnapped the three persons in the early hours of Sunday.
The assailants had made the request for the ransom just few hours after their action.
According to reports, the victims had just finished a vigil when the incident happened.
The names of the victims are given as Ifeoluwa Alani-Bello, Adebare Oduntan and Mary Oliyide.
The spokesman for the state police command, Abimbola Oyeyemi, confirmed the incident.
He said the anti-kidnapping unit of the command had been dispatched to partner the Obada Oko division of the police to rescue the victims.
“It should also be noted that the police had warned members of the public against having vigils and religious activities in areas considered to be isolated and that if at all such places of worship want to have programmes, they should inform the police so that patrols could be extended to such areas and adequate security provided,” he added.
