Three Celestial Church of Christ members, who were abducted during a night service in Obada-Oko area of Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, have been rescued.

They were reportedly rescued unhurt by the Ogun State Government-owned security outfit, the So-Safe Corps.

Saga Gist reports that residents of Obada-Oko have been living in fear over incessant cases of kidnapping in the fast-growing Ewekoro Local Government town.

Church goers were not spared as the kidnappers storm worship centres to drag away worshippers at vigils, the same reason police warned against night services.

However, it appears Mr Ezekiel Agbaje and two other women had ignored police warnings as they were abducted at about 1 am on Friday while in a vigil at the Celestial Church of Christ, Owo Agbara Majemu Parish, Iwokun, near the ‘railway bridge’ in Obada-Oko.

The corps had gathered from one of the rescued victims that the same church was attacked sometimes in June, 2021, with a worshipper kidnapped.

According to So-Safe Corps spokesman, Moruf Yusuf, the Commander of the agency, Soji Ganzallo, had, upon useful information, instructed the Corps Special Squads to go after the abductors and rescue the victims unhurt.

“The So-Safe squad were able to get one of the victims rescued alive and unhurt at about 4 pm on Sunday, 5th. December, 2021,” Yusuf stated.

He added further that the kidnappers were forced to release the remaining two female victims in the early hours of Tuesday.

During interrogation, the white garment church members had said they would find it difficult not to worship within the same church, saying “the God they serve lives in the Church.”

Meanwhile, the So-Safe Corps has advised the general public to shun night vigil as well as worshipping in the forest as earlier warned by the Ogun State police command.
