The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Enoch Adeboye has clarified that only one pastor of the church was abducted.
The revered clergyman had while delivering his sermon on Friday, announced that five ministers of the church were kidnapped on their way to attend the church’s ministers’ conference in Lagos.
But in what appeared like a clarification, Adeboye during an address to the congregation at the evening service, said investigations by the police have shown that it was only one pastor that was abducted alongside four other persons.
“People have been taunting me and challenging me that since I hear from God, how come this is happening to your church pastor’s,” Adeboye was quoted to have said.
“I want to say it has been confirmed that only one pastor of the church was kidnapped along with four other people.
“That does not reduce the weight of the incidence. The church will continue to pray for the release of all those who have been kidnapped.”
The Ogun state police command announced on Saturday that the only woman among the kidnapped victims, who is an official of the RCCG, has been rescued unhurt.
The police had earlier identified the victims as Chidioze Eluwa, Chiemela Iroha, Okoro Ohowukwe, Ndubuizi Owuabueze, and Ibeleji Chidinma.
