Gunmen have reportedly invaded the Celestial Church of Christ, SBJ Oshofa Parish, Wasimi, Ewekoro Local Government Area of Ogun State and abducted two worshippers.
The victims are Oluwaseun Ajose, Assistant Shepherd of the parish, and Dagunro Ayobami, a Sunday school teacher.
The News Agency of Nigeria is reporting that the hoodlums, numbering four, were said to have stormed the church premises at about 11pm on Monday and took away the two worshippers.
It was gathered that the church is located at an isolated area, which allowed the gunmen to operate unhindered.

It was gathered that a joint security team of the police and local vigilantes have been combing the forest in search of the abductees.
The Shepherd of the parish, Oluwatomisin Ehuwaojomo, confirmed the incident to newsmen on Tuesday.
“I have spoken to the Commissioner of Police and they are on it,” Ehuwaojomo said.
Spokesman of the Ogun State Police Command, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, also confirmed the incident.
