Pastor Akanmu who stated this in an interview with newsmen also appreciated those who interceded in prayer for the release of the kidnapped victims.

He revealed that most of the victims are tired and look frail, saying they have been taken to hospital for medical treatment.

Pastor Akanmu said that the church fervently prayed for the release of the victims since the ugly incident occurred.

A thanksgiving prayer session took place at the church premises on Thursday night as the women gathered to sing praises to God for the release of the members of the church.

After the shout of 21 Hallelujah, the women were seen rolling on the floor to show their gratitude that the victims were released unhurt by their captors.

Meanwhile, the leadership of the Ondo State House of Assembly led by the Deputy Speaker, Rt Hon Abayomi Akinruntan, who visited the church, described the incident as unfortunate.

Akinruntan said that, "there’s a law put in place for kidnapping and it’s time to go back to the drawing board to find a way to review the law and see how it can be strengthened to ensure that the lives and property of the people of Ondo State are protected."

The Deputy Speaker added that the House would also liaise with the security agencies to ensure that maximum security is being put in place along the road so that people travelling in and out of Ondo State can travel safely.
