As reported by The Nation, the pastor’s wife and others escaped after the kidnappers slept off while taking them to their den.

The police commissioner, Peter Abayomi, said the kidnappers slept off due to the intake of hard drugs.

The suspected kidnappers are Garuba Mumuni, 27, Yusuf Tale, 21, Kabiru Muhammed,16, Shaibu Umar and Adamu Mohammed, 22.

Abayomi said the kidnappers were unconscious when the victims ran away.

“A case of kidnapping was reported at Ofosu Division, that a pastor’s wife and a member were kidnapped in the church while the third victim was kidnapped while picking snails at the farm.

“The victims however escaped from their assailants on different dates after they had taken hard drugs and slept off.”

The police boss added that the arrest was made after one of the victims informed the police who trail the suspect, Nigerian Tribune reports.

The kidnap incident caused fear among road users on the popular Kogi-Abuja highway. It was gathered that the two GIG and ABC Transports buses are from Umuahia, Abia state.
