10 people abducted in Ajeoku village in Obokun LGA of Osun State have been rescued by operatives of the Nigeria Police, Department of State Security (DSS) and members of the Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC).

Naija News had reported that some of the kidnappers, who pretended as passengers boarded an Abuja-bound bus from Osogbo before striking at the said location around 5 pm Sunday evening.

The kidnappers, suspected to be Fulani Herdsmen took away some of the passengers and left some behind.

It was gathered that two of the abductees were shot by their abductors.

A security source, who was at the scene of the rescue operation, told The Punch that the two victims, who sustained gunshot injuries, were receiving treatment at a private hospital in Imesi-Ile.

The source said five people were initially rescued by the security men, among whom were three siblings and two others.

He added that another five others were later rescued by the security men after several hours of gun duel between the suspected Fulani Herdsmen and the security men.
