Samuel Kanu, the Prelate of the Methodist Church in Nigeria, has been kidnapped by terrorists identified as Unknown Gunmen by various media outlets.
On Sunday, he was kidnapped along the Enugu-Port Harcourt Expressway in Abia’s Umunneochi Local Government Area.
Along with two Methodist Bishop of Owerri Rt. Rev. Dennis Mark and the Prelate’s Chaplain, he was kidnapped.
They were abducted in the afternoon while they were leaving a programme in the council district.
SP Geoffrey Ogbonna, a spokesman for Abia Police, verified the event.
He said: “It’s extremely unfortunate. His rescue, along with that of the other priests with him, is a key priority.
We request credible information from the general public on their rescue.
