Gunmen abduct two Reverend Sisters …Demand N20m ransom

Fighting crime as a collective responsibility

Two Reverend Sisters were at the weekend reportedly kidnapped alongside their driver in the Kajola area of Ondo State.

The nuns attached to the St. Louis Ville Catholic School, Kaduna state were on their way to IjebuItele, Ogun State, for a meeting when their vehicle broke down on the way.

While they were trying to fix the problem, their abductors reportedly swooped on them and whisked them to an unknown destination.

A source told the Punch that one of the victims was an indigene of Ondo State.

The source said the kidnappers had demanded a ransom of N20m.

The source said, “The two sisters were in their bus and were going for a special meeting of the group in IjebuItele. They were travelling when their vehicle broke down on the road.

“As they were trying to fix the problem, the kidnappers swooped on them and took the sisters and their driver away.

“The church has contacted their family members.

“We have been told that the kidnappers demanded N20m before they will release them, but the church has started negotiating with them and hopefully, they will be released,” the source revealed.

When contacted, the Ondo State Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Femi Joseph, said the police were on the trail of the suspects, noting that the case was reported at the anti-kidnapping section of the Kajola Police Division.

He reassured that the victims would be rescued unhurt.

The PPRO said, “The sisters were travelling to IjebuItele. When they got to Kajola, their vehicle broke down.

“The hoodlums, who saw it as an opportunity, swopped on them and took them away, along with their driver. “We will soon rescue them in no time,” Joseph said.
