The police in Ogun State say they are collaborating with other security agencies to rescue three workers of former President Olusegun Obasanjo abducted by kidnappers.
The three employees of Obasanjo Holdings were abducted by gunmen on Wednesday at a community in Obafemi-Owode Local Government Area of Ogun State.
The police spokesman, Abimbola Oyeyemi, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Thursday in Ota, Ogun State, that the anti-kidnapping section and the Special Weapons and Tactics section of the police were tracking the kidnappers.

Mr Oyeyemi advised residents to be security conscious and to refrain from keeping late nights, especially in isolated areas.
