Five ministers of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) have been kidnapped.
They were kidnapped on their way to the Conference of Church Ministers in Lagos.
The RCCG’s general supervisor, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, announced the kidnapping on Friday in the redeemed camp along the Lagos-Ibadan highway.
Adeboye said the kidnapping took place Thursday along the Ijebu-Ode axis.
He instructed the congregation to pray for the release of the hostages.
Adeboye said it was the first time an incident of this magnitude occurred.
“As a father, how do you think I should feel to hear that five of my children have been kidnapped while on their way to attend the Ministers Conference?” he asked.
