A Nigerian Pastor identified as Oluwafemi Komolafe has been reportedly killed by unknown gunmen suspected to be kidnappers along the Benin-Ijebu Ode Expressway at Ore in the Odigbo Local Government Area of Ondo State.

It was gathered that the late pastor was traveling in the company of his son, named Timilehin, when they were attacked by the gunmen.

While speaking with newsmen on the incident yesterday, the Ondo State Commissioner of Police, Gbenga Adeyanju who stated that the incident happened on Friday, 24th of November 2017, disclosed that that the kidnappers had abducted Timileyin but they were able to rescue him and two others that were in the kidnappers den.

We even lost one of our men who went for the operation. After the incident, our men with the assistance of the local hunters combed the whole area. We attacked the hoodlums and we were able to rescue the three victims in their den. The boy whose father was killed and two other travellers who were going to Lagos from Port Harcourt were rescued successfully".
