Gunmen have allegedly killed two people including the wife of an Evangelical Church Winning All (ECWA) pastor, Mrs Olawale, in the Agbeku community of the Ifelodun Local Government Area of Kwara State.
The incident, it was gathered, happened on Saturday night when the abductors invaded the church’s auditorium and the residence of the victims.
The late pastor’s wife operates a provision store in the area.
A community leader, Hon Rasaki Subair, told our correspondent on Sunday that the gunmen also went away with “Rev Oladunni, the present ECWA Igbaja District Church Council (DCC) chairman.”
He said, “They killed Mrs Olawale, wife of one of the pastors who operates a thriving provision store in the community while another person who was also shot is battling for life in a hospital now. They also went away with the aide of the late pastor’s wife and another male victim”.
Several calls made to the Commissioner of Police, Victor Olaiya, were unanswered on Sunday.
Although the command is yet to appoint a spokesperson following the retirement of Ajayi Okasanmi (SP), a senior officer who confided in our correspondent confirmed the incident.
The officer, a police superintendent said, “We are trying to get details about the incident for now please”.
