A Catholic Cleric, Reverend Father Anthony Dawah in Kaduna State, has been abducted by unknown gunmen. According to reports, Father Dawah was Kidnapped on Tuesday, March 30.
The Director of communication of the Catholic Archdiocese of Kaduna, Reverend Father Stephen Onyema, who confirmed his abduction, said Father Dawah was whisked away at Dogon Kurmi village in Kagarko Local Government Area of Kaduna state. Father Dawah was reportedly abducted alongside the wife and child of the catechist and domestic staff of the church.
This kidnapping comes barely a week after eight members of the Redeemed Church were kidnapped in Kaduna state. The kidnappers have since demanded a ransom of N50 million for the abducted RCCG members.
