Gunmen kidnap Baptist pastor in Kaduna

Gunmen suspected to be kidnappers have abducted another pastor,  Reverend Elisha Noma of Nagarta Baptist Church, Angwan Makiri, near Udawa, Chikun local government area of Kaduna State.


The abduction happened barely two weeks after a Pastor in charge of Living Faith Church, Angwan Romi, Kaduna, Jeremiah Omolewa, was murdered and ransom was paid to free his abducted wife.

The armed criminals are about 20, reportedly attacked the village around 1:30 am Wednesday and forced their way into the Pastor’s house and went away with him and his son.

Emmanuel was threatened to go and raise an unspecified amount of money as ransom to secure the release of his father within five days or risk being murdered.

“We are yet to report to the police because even when we had similar experience in the past and we contacted them, they did not do anything about it. So, it is of no use.”

The Kaduna state police command spokesperson, DSP Yakubu Sabo, was yet to respond to message sent to him on this development.
