The Ogun State Police command has advised religious leaders in the state to seek police protection before religious activities are held.

In a statement made available to newsmen on Friday, the police spokesperson in the state, Omolola Odutola, noted that the State Commissioner, Abiodun Alamutu, also warned religious leaders to desist from organising night programmes for their members.

She said, before religion activities are held at any centre, podium, location, or area, authorities of the religious body, should approach the nearest Area Commands, Divisional Police Station for adequate security and coverage.

The warning came in the wake of the attack on a Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) in Abule-Ori, Obafemi-Owode Local Government of the State, where a pastor was killed and seven worshipers kidnapped by some unknown gunmen last weekend.
