Armed bandits on Sunday abducted the Bishop of Anglican Diocese at Jebba, Kwara State, Rt. Rev Aderogba, his wife, and driver along Oyo/Ogbomoso expressway.
The victims were on their way to Yewa in Ogun state when the incident happened.
This was confirmed by the Oyo State Police Public Relations Officer, Adewale Osifeso.
An investigation by Vanguard, however, revealed that the abductors forced their vehicle to stop in motion before they were forced to enter another stationed vehicle.
It was further learned that they were yet to establish a link with the relations of their abductees.
Confirming the incident, the Police image maker said the command had launched a manhunt for the suspected kidnappers
Osifeso said Preliminary investigations reveal that the victim’s vehicle developed what seemed a mechanical fault while traveling from Yewa, Ogun State to Jebba, Kwara State en route to an isolated area along New Oyo/Ogbomoso Expressway.
All the tactical teams of the Command Anti-Kidnapping squad, Ambush Squad, Puff Adder, Police Mobile Force, PMF, Counter Terrorism Unit, CTU, and Conventional Police personnel along with local hunters and vigilantes are all involved in the rescue operations.
