Men of the Ogun State Police Command have rescued three kidnapped victims who were abducted along Siun/Ajura road in Ogere Remo area of the State.
The three victims, Jibril Afolabi, Alhaji Amusat Taofeek and Balikis Mohammed were coming from Ilorin, Kwara State and were on their way to Owode Egbado in Yewa South Local Government areas of Ogun State.
Their vehicle was allegedly double-crossed at about 3am by some gunmen who dragged them into the bush, while other passengers escaped.
Receiving the information, the Commissioner of Police, CP Edward Awolowo Ajogun, directed the Area Commander, Sagamu to mobilize men from all the divisions within the area and go after the hoodlums.
He equally ordered the command’s anti-kidnapping unit as well as SWAT to move to the scene.
The entire bush was cordoned off, and combed thoroughly with the assistance of hunters, local vigilantes and men of So Safe Corp. The pressure mounted on the kidnappers made them to abandon the victims and took to flight.
All the victims were there and then rescued without any ransom paid.
They have been escorted to their destination at Owode Egbado in Idiroko area of the state.
