Abductors of a pastor with the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Okukayode Bajomo have reportedly demanded for N100 million, before they will release him.
Bajomo was abducted last Sunday, at one of the church’s parishes at Santos Bus Stop, Isawo area of Ikorodu. Two residents of the area, Kamoru and an unnamed hairdresser, who were shot by the kidnappers, have also died.

A church member, who pleaded anonymity, while speaking with Lagos Metro said that the gunmen disguised as worshippers, when they abducted the Pastor.
The member said “we were set for the workers’ early Sunday meeting, when the gunmen came. We thought they were worshippers until we saw their guns.”
The church member also confirmed that, “now they are asking for N100 million and they have not reduced it since they contacted the family, on Sunday.”
A police source at Ipakado police station, who pleaded anonymity, while speaking with Lagos Metro said that the police in the area are working on more than 10 cases of kidnap.
The police source stated that, apart from the case of the RCCG pastor, there were also cases of a popular hotelier, a set of twins, a woman and another woman being investigated.
