ABDUCTORS OF CATHOLIC PRIEST DEMAND RANSOM, CHURCH CALLS FOR MORE PRAYERS

A press statement ahs been released by the Catholic Diocese of Ondo regarding the abduction of Revd Fr Joseph Ajayi. In a statement signed by Revd Fr Victor Ibiyemi, the Secretary to the Diocese, he calls on the Christian faithful and people of Good will to intensify prayers for the release of Fr Ajayi.

Recall that Fr Ajayi was kidnapped on 6th of December, 2021. He was on his way to Ilara-Mokin – located very close to Akure, the Ondo State capital where his parish is situated – before he was attacked and taken away by yet-to-be-identified persons to an undisclosed location. The 49-year-old reverend father was said to be traveling alone. However, the police authorities in the state have yet to confirm the incident.

It is not the first time a Catholic priest would be abducted. Recently a reverend father was kidnapped in Imo State but those responsible for the incident were arrested by security operatives.

The abducted clergyman who has since regained freedom is Reverend Father Fidelis Ekemgba who is in charge of St. Peter’s Catholic Parish, Umunohu Amakohia in Ihitte Uboma LGA of Imo State.
