Bandits Abduct Catholic Priest In Kaduna


Parish priest of St Thomas Catholic Church in Zaman Dabo community, Zango Kataf Local Government Area of Kaduna State, Reverend Father Gabriel Ukeh has been abducted by bandits.

Ukeh was abducted at the parish rectory in the early hours of yesterday.

In a statement yesterday announcing the incident, the Vicar General, Emmanuel Kazah, condemned the incessant abduction of citizens for ransom and called on security agencies to up their game.

“While we solicit fervent prayers for his urgent and safe release, we equally condemn this act of incessant kidnapping for ransom and we call on government to horn its security intelligence as we approach the celebration of Sallah. 

“As we work with security operatives for his quick release, we wish to call on all to stay away from taking the law into their hands. We will use every legitimate means to ensure that Father comes back to us safe and sound.

“Through the intercessions of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of Priests and Religious, may Jesus the crucified hearken to our prayers and hasten the unconditional release of his priest and every other abducted person.”

Spokesperson for the Kaduna State Police Command, Mansir Hassan could not be reached when contacted.
