October 2nd, 2015 – Picture: Nigerian Pastor, Japhet Obafemi Of The Apostolic Faith Mission Kidnapped By Fulani Cattlemen In Akoko Ondo State Released After Payment Of Ransom


Some suspected Fulani cattlemen who allegedly kidnapped Pastor Japheth Obafemi of The Apostolic Faith Mission in Ondo State have released him.

The victim was kidnapped last month on Auga Akunu Road in Akoko N-E LGA of Ondo State.

The cleric regained freedom after his family reportedly paid an undisclosed amount of money as ransom.

The kidnappers had demanded for a ransom of N60 million from the family. It was gathered that the 70-year-old pastor was seen at Ise-Akoko, a few kilometres from where he was kidnapped last Monday.

Obafemi, who sustained injury on his head, said he trekked over six kilometres from the bush where he was released to Ise-Akoko.

This is the second high profile abduction carried out by Fulanis in Ondo state within a month.

Few days ago ex-SGF Olu Falae was kidnapped on his farm in Akure.

The suspected Fulani gunmen took N2million ransom from his family members before releasing him.

Something must be done urgently to curb this emerging threat.

    Any reasonable nigeria suppose to know that those masterminded in chief Olu Falaye’s kidnapping are not the fulanis. I’m not exonerating the fulanis here! I believe they working for some group of people, they just want it to appear as if they were the one. Its possible they hire them for the job.

    Fulani’s again? What message are they trying to pass across? What a country. How can one stupid tribe in a whole nation feel they can do anything and go away with it. In Plateau they kill for a living, now, they have extended it to the west. Imagine, the federal government is putting up deaf and dump attitude until they go out of hand. Please Nigerians this is the right time to put a stop to this nonsense before it gives birth to something else. This is annoying, which other tribe can do that in the north? They kill us and cry out for sympathy. It’s high time this nonsense stops.
