The Prelate of the Methodist Church Nigeria, His Eminence, Samuel Kanu Uche, was on Sunday, reportedly, kidnapped along the Enugu-Port Harcourt Expressway, in Umunneochi Local Government Area of Abia State.
The Naijacrawl gathered that the kidnappers took him alongside the Rt. Rev. Dennis Mark, the Methodist Bishop of Owerri and the Prelate’s Chaplain.
It was revealed that the clergymen were kidnapped in the afternoon while they were on their way from a programme in the council area.
The Police Public Relations Officer in Abia, SP Geoffrey Ogbonna, confirmed the incident to Naijacrawl.
He said it was quite unfortunate, and efforts were in top gear toward his rescue as well as the other priests with him.
According to him, the police command solicited credible information from the public toward their rescue.
