Unknown Gunmen Kidnapped Catholic Priest In Kogi State

Unknown gunmen kidnapped Rev. Fr. Christopher Onotu, the parish priest of Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Obangede, Okehi Local Government Area of Kogi State.

At about 9pm on Saturday, June 4, gunmen invade the church and entered the priest’s bedroom through the window, and whisked him away to an unknown destination. 

It was gathered that members of the church found out about the incident on Sunday morning when they arrived for the first mass.

A member of the Church told Tribune Online that the abductors went away with the priest’s car.

A source said, “They dropped his two phones but went with the sim cards. The activities of gunmen in the central senatorial district of the state have had residents panicking for the last few weeks.”
