THE General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, on Friday decried the worsening state of security in Nigeria, declaring that the country had never been this bad.

Pastor Adeboye, who said the spate of killings, abduction and general banditry across the nation was unprecedented, also announced the kidnapping of five pastors of his church on Thursday evening at J3/J4 area of Ogbere on the Benin-Ijebu-Ode-Sagamu Expressway.

The Ogun State police command, through its Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, confirmed the incident.

The abducted pastors were travelling in a commercial vehicle with registration number KW 230 XA belonging to Abia Line Transport Company which was coming from the eastern part of the country heading towards Lagos.

The police spokesman told journalists in Abeokuta that the gunmen, after forcing the vehicle to a halt, whisked away four men and a woman into the forest but left behind the driver, a sick passenger and his wife in the vehicle.

The abducted pastors, according to the police, are Chidioze Eluwa (male), Chiemela Iroha (male), Okoro Ohowukwe (male), Ndubuizi Nwabueze (male) and Ibeleji Chidinma (female).
