Gunmen raid church, abduct worshippers




Gunmen suspected of kidnapping have reportedly stormed a celestial church in Ogun State, abducting two attendees named Oladapo Seyifunmi and Oluboboye Abiola. 

The event occurred on Thursday in a church near Oriyarin village, Mowe, in Ogun State’s Obafemi Owode Local Government Area.

According to a statement issued on Friday by the state police public relations officer, SP Omolola Odutola, the criminals fled via a thick woodland behind the church.
