Gunmen Kill Pastor ‘Oluwafemi Komolafe’, Cop And Abduct Two
Gunmen struck along Ore, Benin-Ijebu Ode Expressway, in the Odigbo Local Government Area of Ondo State, killing a pastor, Oluwafemi Komolafe, a policeman and abducted two unidentified people.
The Ondo State Commissioner of Police, Mr Gbenga Adeyanju confirmed this to our correspondent on Thursday.
He said that the gunmen waylaid the pastor in his car while taking his son, Timilehin, an undergraduate in one of the private universities in the state back to school.
According to the police, the cleric was a pastor in one of the popular churches in Akure, Ondo State capital.
It was gathered that the gunmen attacked the car and another commercial bus coming from Port Harcourt and heading to Lagos.
The gunmen killed the pastor instantly and abducted his son, Timilehin. They also abducted two passengers from the commercial bus.
However, the commissioner said that the command quickly deployed policemen in the area, which led to a serious shootout between them and the hoodlums.
In the cause of the shooting, a policeman was killed but the commissioner refused to mention the name of the cop.
He stated that the abducted undergraduate son of the pastor had since been rescued from the gunmen.
