Inspector General of Police (IG), Solomon Arase, sent men from the Intelligence Squad from Abuja to rescue two reverend sisters kidnapped last week. The nuns, Apo Perpetual and Roseline Familade were kidnapped on the popular Benin-Ijebu- Ode Expressway while on their way to a religious function in Ogun state. They were kidnapped last week Sunday, May 15, at Kajola village in Odigbo local government area of Ogun state alongside the driver of the vehicle in which they were traveling in.
The Ondo state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Mr. Femi Joseph, confirmed the safe return of the nuns, adding that they were hale and healthy. He however declined to give the New Telegraph a detailed information about how the operation to rescue the victims was carried out by the police.
“All what I can say for now is that the reverend sisters and their driver have been rescued by our men and the intelligent squad sent by the IG from Abuja. We are still on the trail of the suspects and we will soon arrest them because we are presently combing the area where we rescued them.”
“They quickly abandoned the kidnapped victims when they discovered that we were closer to where they hid them. “No ransom was paid before we secured their release but very soon, the police will arrest those kidnappers,” Joseph said.
Thank God for their rescue!
