Five ministers of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) have been abducted on their way to attend the church's Ministers' Conference in Lagos.
The General Overseer of the RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adeboye announced the abduction on Friday while giving a talk at the Redeemed Camp along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
Pastor Adeboye said the abduction took place on Thursday along the Ijebu-Ode axis. He charged the congregation to pray for the release of the abductees.
The General Overseer said this is the first time such incident of that magnitude was happening. "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 said.
