Gunmen Kidnap Pastor, wife, children in Delta


An Anglican pastor, Rev. Agbadamashi Emmanuel, together with his wife and children have been kidnapped by gunmen along the East-West road by Evwreni junction.

Punch reports that the incident occurred on Friday while the Anglican priest and his family members were travelling from Ughelli to the Uwheru community in Ughelli North Local Government Area of the State.

It was gathered that the gunmen suddenly accosted them and marched them into the bush.

The incident was confirmed to journalists in Warri on Monday morning by the Public Relations Officer of the Anglican Communion, Ughelli Diocese, Hon. Justice Iyasere.

He, however, could not confirm if the kidnappers had made any ransom demand.

But the abducted cleric and his family were still repeatedly in captivity as of the time of filing this report.
