Priest abducted after morning mass in Nigeria
Father Godfrey Chimezie of St. Theresa’s Parish, Abia State, was abducted by gunmen last week after attending morning mass.
“The kidnappers forced him out of his Toyota Corolla car and bundled him into their SUV jeep and escaped,” an eyewitness told The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).
In a separate incident later that day, a woman was also abducted.
“NAN learnt that while the priest was abducted on the Enyiukwu Road in Ohokobe Afaraukwu, near the church, the lady was abducted at a petrol station on Aba Road, near Madonna Catholic Hospital, Umuahia,” reported Vanguard news.
