Barely two weeks after a Pastor in charge of Living Faith Church, Angwan Romi, Kaduna, Jeremiah Omolewa, was killed and ransom was paid to free his abducted wife, another Pastor in charge of Nagarta Baptist Church, Angwan Makiri, near Udawa, Chikun local government area of Kaduna State has been kidnapped.

Eyewitness account said, the armed kidnappers, numbering about 20, reportedly stormed the village around 1:30 am Wednesday and forced their way into the Pastor’s house and went away with him and his son.

But, they later released the son, Emmanuel Elisha, who 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 killed.

Spokesman for Kaduna State  Police Command, DSP Yakubu Sabo, was yet to respond to message sent to him on this development.

Meanwhile, an update on the incident has it that the abductors of the pastor, Reverend Elisha Noma Nagarta, Baptist Church, Makiri, Chikun local government area of Kaduna State, have demanded N20m ransom.

The pastor was kidnapped in his home on Wednesday morning by unknown gunmen and taken away with him to an unknown destination.

But his son, Emmanuel Noma, who was earlier abducted together with his father but later released said, the abductors had contacted the family and demanded the said amount.

“They have contacted the family this afternoon and demanded N20 million. We told them we don’t have that kind of money. We are still negotiating with them,” he said. (Daily Sun)
