Catholic Priest Abducted In Ekiti
The series of kidnappings that have been taking place in Ekiti State on Tuesday assumed a worse dimension as a Catholic priest in Ekiti diocese, Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Akingbade, has been kidnapped by suspected gunmen.
The cleric was abducted in Ido-Ekiti on Tuesday about 8pm and taken to an unknown destination.
It was gathered that the three abductors stormed the residence of the cleric, who is the Parish Priest of St. Benedict’s Catholic Church in the town, and shot into the air sporadically before gaining entry to perpetrate the nefarious act. The cleric is the Assistant Director, Justice, Development and Peace Initiative (JDPI) of the church in the diocese.
