The state Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, confirmed the incident.

According to him, 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.

The security situation in the southwestern part of the country has deteriorated over the last few weeks with many attacks being reported.
