The victim had come to his church to deliver some products.

Adelopo who said he had spent over 20 years in the ministry, stated:

I was ordained as a pastor by Bishop Abayomi in Ibadan in 2014.

We do a lot of charity in my church and during this COVID-19 pandemic period.

I didn’t have anything in my account and people were still coming for help.

We needed money to buy foodstuffs and ram for this Sallah and that was why I decided to source money from these companies by kidnapping their staff.

The kidnap victim, Mr Job, narrated his ordeal, he said:

I spent 10 days in captivity inside an underground hole, which they called ‘Special Guest House.

I was only fed with garri, sugar and beans.

When I got to the church to deliver the items, they put a rope around my neck from the back and I started struggling to free myself from the rope.

When they finally brought me down, the pastor injected me and that was the only thing I remember.

They were feeding me with garri, sugar, beans, coke and water.

I spent about nine days in that hole and was rescued by the police on the 10th day.

I have never experienced such a thing like that before.
