The wife of a pastor of Evangelical Church Winning All in Agbeku in the Ifelodun Local Government Area of Kwara State identified as Mrs Olawale was feared killed on Saturday night by kidnappers who invaded the community.

Another person was reportedly battling for his life in a hospital as of press time.

The abductors allegedly invaded the church auditorium and residence of the victims, including the late pastor’s wife, who operated a provision store in the area.

A community leader, Rasaki Zubair, told our correspondent on Sunday that the kidnappers allegedly “killed Mrs Olawale while another victim, also shot, was battling for life in a hospital in the area.

“The abductors also went away with the aide of the late pastor’s wife and another male victim.”

Several calls by PUNCH Metro to the Commissioner of Police, Victor Olaiya, were not answered on Sunday.

Although the command had yet to appoint a spokesperson following the retirement of SP Ajayi Okasanmi, a senior officer who confided in our correspondent confirmed the incident.

The officer added that “We are trying to get details about the incident for now please.” [The Punch]
