Gunmen have whisked away a pastor with Redeemed Christian Church of God at Santos bus stop in the Isawo, Ikorodu, Lagos State, on Sunday, July 24.

According to reports, the pastor, simply identified as Bajomo was abducted around 7am while preparing for a workers’ meeting.

A witness,  identified as Esther, said the gunmen wore attractive clothes as if they had come for the church service.

“The pastor came earlier around 7am to prepare for a workers’ meeting. The shocking thing was that the men walked in quietly like new members.

“They dressed like people who had come to church. They had Bibles with them. They did not shoot or display any weapon. It was when they got to the pastor that they brought out their guns and ordered him to come with them.

“The pastor got to the church before anyone else and only three members had arrived before the abduction.

“We discovered after they had left that they were Ijaw militants. They have taken away our pastor. Some members, after the incident, went to the pastor’s house to inform his family members.

“It is a sad occurrence in our area that residents are being abducted, raped, assaulted and even killed every day. It is a problem that has been left to become a calamity.
“I think the state government and the police really need to do something about these recurring incidents. We are at the mercy of the Ijaw boys.”

While the RCCG head, media and public relations, Pastor Segun Adegbiji, confirmed the abduction, the Lagos police command is yet to confirm the abduction.

“RCCG will not take abduction or murder of our pastors and members any more. We like to warn murderers and abductors that God will show up with anger and fire. He will consume them speedily,” RCCG’s pro, Pastor Segun Adegbiji said.

Meanwhile, Pastor Eunice Olawale, the female preacher of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Abuja, who was murdered days ago while she preached, has been buried.
