Gunmen abduct Catholic priest in Benue

AdeyiUnknown gunmen last Saturday abducted the Vicar General of the Catholic Diocese of Otukpo, Very Reverend Fr. John Adeyi, barely three weeks after a medical consultant with the Federal Medical Centre, Makurdi, Dr. Abah, was kidnapped.

Rev. Fr. Adeyi’s abductors are reportedly demanding N10 million ransom before his release.

Reacting to the rise in abductions in the area, an Idoma socio-cultural group, Opiatoha K’Idoma in a statement signed by its Secretary, Mr. Adoka Adaji, condemned the acts, describing it as alien to the community.
