Kidnappers abduct RCCG elder in Ogun, demand 50m ransom

Hoodlums suspected to be kidnappers have abducted a 70-year-old piggery farmer and elder with the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) Ijebu Igbo, headquarters of Ijebu North Local Government, Pa Adeife Ifelaja.

Vanguard reliably gathered that Pa Adeife was kidnapped at his residence in Ijebu Igbo on the night of December 31, 2023 while preparing to go for the Crossover service.

A source in the town told our Correspondent that the abductors have reached out to the family and demanded for N50m

The source said " yes, it is true that Pa Adeife Ifelaja was kidnapped on the night of Sunday, December 31, 2023 while preparing for the Crossover service. I learnt that the abductors are asking for N50m which family said it was huge. I heard they were negotiating for N10m but I don't know if the ransom has been paid. The incident was reported at a police station in Ijebu Igbo".

The Commissioner of Police in the State, Abiodun Alamutu, while confirming the incident said that the state command operatives are leaving nothing to chance to ensure the farmer is released and reunited with his family.

Alamutu said, "the police have been working to get the man released. We are on it even when the kidnappers have been trying to mislead us about their location but we are on their trail and very soon, we shall achieve success".
