Unknown gunmen on Monday night reportedly kidnapped the priest in charge of St. John’s Catholic Church, Obinomba in Ukwuani Local Government Area of Delta State.
The priest simply identified as Rev. Fr. Harrison, was said to have been kidnapped at about 8p.m. as he was meandering a bad spot in Oria-Abraka, Ethiope East Local Government Area of the state when he was returning to base from Warri in his Highlander Jeep.
Witnesses said that the kidnappers shot sporadically into the air to scare away passers-by at the scene of the operation just as they also prevented possible resistance.
