Baptist Cleric Abducted In Kaduna, Captors Demand Ransom Within 5 Days

Kidnappers have abducted yet another Christian clergyman in Kaduna.
The abducted Pastor Elisha Noma of Nagarta Baptist Church, Angwan Makiri, was reportedly whisked off near Udawa, Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

This nauseating development is coming up barely two weeks after a Living Faith Church pastor, Jeremiah Omolewa, was killed even after a ransom was paid to free his abducted wife.

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.

Emmanuel Elisha, 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.

According to the pastor’s son, “They came around 1 am. They were about 20 armed men came to the village and started hitting at doors but nobody opened. They then forced their way into houses and vandalised properties. They carted away some valuables including mobile phones and clothing in my mother’s box.

“They picked me together with my father. But after a while into the bush, I was released and they went away with my father. One of them was dressed in military camouflage.

“As they released me, they threatened that if we fail to bring money in five days even though they didn’t mention the specific ransom, they will kill him”, he recalled.
