The Ogun State Police Command announced on Friday that Oladapo Seyifunmi, one of two worshippers kidnapped at the Celestial Church of Christ, Oriyarin Parish, Mowe in the state’s Obafemi/Owode Local Government Area, has been released.

SP Omolola Odutola, the state police command’s spokesperson, confirmed this in a Facebook post.

Seyifunmi and Oluboboye Abiola were reportedly kidnapped from the church on Thursday after gunmen stormed in.

On Friday, Odutola verified the two worshippers’ abduction via the police’s X handle.
