Five Pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) have been kidnapped while on their way to church.
The clergymen were kidnapped on their way to attend the Ministers Conference in Lagos.
Pastor Enoch Adeboye, General Overseer of the RCCG, announced the abduction on Friday at the Redeemed Camp along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
Pastor Adeboye said the abduction took place on Thursday along the Ijebu-Ode axis.
He admonished the congregation to pray for the immediate release of the abductees.
Adeboye also noted that it was the first time such incident of that magnitude was happening.
He said: “As a father, how do you think I should feel good to hear that five of my children have been kidnapped while on their way to attend the Ministers Conference?” he asked.
