The Oyo State Police Public Relations Officer said in Ibadan on Monday that the command was working hard to rescue kidnapped Biodun Ogunbeku from his abductors.

Mr. Ogunbeku, a reverend of the Methodist Church of Nigeria, Akobo-Ojurin, Diocese of Agodi, Ibadan, was kidnapped on Thursday by five gunmen.

He was kidnapped at his farm at Kufi area, along Olounda-Aba Road in Ibadan at about 7 p.m.

He said that investigations were ongoing and that the Commissioner of Police would brief journalists as soon as investigations were completed.
