“On Tuesday night around 2100hrs, we received a distress call from residents of Kelebe in Osogbo that they saw an unknown woman fleeing out of the forest in the area and our men swung into action immediately to rescue the victim and we succeeded in rescuing her and brought her for safety in our office.

“During cross-examination, we discovered that she and her husband were abducted on Friday on their way from Iragbiji to a night vigil in Osogbo by unknown gunmen.

Adewinmbi advised the general public to be security conscious and urged them to report any suspicious movement in their environment to the security agencies without delay.
