Otamayomi Ogedengbe, the wife of a pastor kidnapped at his church in Irese, Ifedore Local Government Area of Ondo State, has appealed to the state’s security agencies to ensure her husband’s release.
You could recall Pastor Ogedengbe of the Deeper Life Christian Church was kidnapped on Monday evening inside the church by gunmen who arrived in a Toyota Corolla vehicle.
According to her, some unidentified people entered the premises of the church and sought out the pastor before they dragged him away.
She said, “Monday was our Bible study day. Immediately after the Bible study, we were rounding off when one of our brothers collected the car key to park it properly. He met some boys outside.
“He said the boys pushed him down from the car and he thought they wanted to collect the car. They slapped him and when they looked at him properly and discovered he was not the person they were looking for, they brought him inside the church and started searching for who they were looking for.
“They saw my husband and said he was the person. When we got outside, they started shooting and they pushed my husband into their car. We drove after them towards Irese road but they were shooting at us. It was dark; so, we stopped. Since then we have not heard anything from them (kidnappers).
“May God help me to bring my husband back. He is the only son of his parents. Nigerians should help secure the release of my husband.”
