Operatives of the Ondo State Security Network Agency, code-named Amotekun Corps, have rescued two kidnap victims abducted by gunmen at Oke-oge community, around Eleyowo in Akure North Local Government Area of the state.

The Commandant of the Corps, Adetunji Adeleye, disclosed this while parading some suspects in Akure, the state capital.

Mr Adeleye, said the Corps swung into action after getting a distress call from members of the community.

The commandant said: “we got a distress call from a community in Akure that two of their members were whisked away by unknown gunmen and within a few minutes, we got there, cordoned off the area, rescued the victims, Daisi Oloye and Monday John.

“We also arrested one of the kidnappers who confessed that four other gun-wielding members of his team have fled to the southern part of the country.”

Narrating their ordeal, one of the kidnapped victims, Daisi Oloye, explained that they were working on their farm when the kidnappers arrived.

Oloye said: “we noticed the sudden arrival of the five men and were scared as we do not know their mission.

“One of them attacked me with a machete, aiming for my head but I blocked it with my hand and I fell to the ground immediately as a result of the impact on my hand.

“It was when they all focused on me that my friend escaped to the community to inform our people and I was rescued by amotekun when they (the kidnappers) were taking me away.”

The commandant said the Corps is on the trail of the fleeing suspects and will ensure they are all brought to book.
