Unknown gunmen have abducted a pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) branch in Isawo, Ikorodu, Lagos State, Vanguard reports.
The unnamed man of God was said to have been taken inside the church on Sunday, July 24, while preparing for workers meeting.
It was gathered that the kidnappers had entered the church pretending to be members who came to worship before pulling guns on the pastor.
One of the church members identified as Williams, said the cleric was abducted around 7a.m, explaining that the workers meeting usually holds before the main service of the day.
“He was busy preparing for the meeting, when suddenly some people came in dressed in beautiful attire and they were taken for members who had come to worship. It was not until they pulled out guns before it dawned on us that they are militants,” he said.
According to a resident, Isiaka Disu, kidnapping in the area has become rampant in the last one year, urging the Lagos State government to step up security in the axis.
