Pastor, policeman killed in shootout with kidnappers in Ondo


Oluwafemi Akomolafe, a pastor/businessman and one policeman have been shot dead during a shootout between police detectives and suspected kidnappers along Ore expressway, Ondo state, Vanguard reports.

Akomolafe was taking his son Timilehin back to school in his car when he ran into the crossfire.

He was reported to have died instantly following the stray bullet that hit him while the kidnappers took his son and the two other victims away.

The state police detectives in conjunction with the village hunters have been able to rescued Timilehin and the two others – Micheal Popoola and Henry Usifo.

Confirming this yesterday, the state Police Commissioner, Olugbenga Adeyanju said the victims were rescued when detectives invaded the kidnappers’ hideout adding that no ransom was paid.

Adeyanju who confirmed that the three victims were kidnapped while travelling from Port Harcourt to Lagos said:

“On Nov. 24 at about 3:45 p.m., one Mr. Akomolafe was travelling from Akure to Lagos to drop his son, Timilehin at the University of Lagos.

“Unfortunately his jeep was intercepted by kidnappers and in the process, he was killed and his son was kidnapped.

“The jeep right behind his vehicle was equally shot and the mobile policeman lost his life but the driver was fast enough to escape to safety when policemen came to the scene firing and the kidnappers ran away.

“They took Timilehin and two other travellers, Popoola and Usifo, who were coming from Port Harcourt to Lagos in a commercial vehicle, and this happened almost simultaneously.”

Confirming the rescue, the commissioner further said:

“The victims were, however, rescued without any ransom paid after men of the Nigeria Police and local hunters combed the bush around Ore, where they intercepted the kidnappers, engaging in a gun battle with them, and injuring one of them, who escaped in the process.

It was said that no arrest was made but those rescued are providing useful information to help in the arrest of the kidnappers.
