By Temitope Adedeji, Akure

The Commissioner of Police, Ondo State Police Command, CP Undie Adie, Psc+, has placed officers and men of his command on an all hour rescue mission until Benjamin Oluyomade of Enyimba Football Club, Aba and Bayo Ojo of Heartland Football Club, Owerri are rescued from their abductors.

The police boss said this in a statement issued by the Command spokesperson, Tee Leo Ikolo, which was made available to Western Post on Monday that the officers of the command will not rest until the culprits are caught and the victims are rescued

It would be recalled that the said footballers and a friend, named James Igho who were travelling from the South-Eastern part of the Country to Lagos on Sunday, the 22nd of March, 2020, were abducted by some unidentified gunmen along Ifon- Ipele road at about 1630hrs.

On getting the information, Police Divisions within the axis mobilized their men in pursuant of the unknown gunmen in order to rescue the abducted footballers, but could only rescue James Igho at the time; while the kidnappers went away with the other two.

CP Adie who calls this a daring confrontation, says his officers and men would not go to sleep until these footballers are rescued.

Meanwhile, Policemen from Divisions within that area are combing the forests within to ensure the kidnapped footballers are freed from their captors.

CP Undie Adie Psc+ promises the government and good people of Ondo State that the Ondo State Police Command under his policing supervision will stop at nothing to ensure that citizens enjoy all their fundamental human rights, with freedom of movement as one of his basic priorities as a professional Police officer.
