DELTA: Gunmen abduct Catholic priest in Oria-Abraka

GUNMEN, suspected to be kidnappers, have abducted the priest of St. John’s Catholic Church, Obinomba in Ukwuani Local Government Area of the state

The incident was said to have happened yesterday night.

The priest, identified as Rev. Fr. Harrison, was said to have been kidnapped at about

He was said to be meandering a bad spot in Oria-Abraka, Ethiope East Local Government Area of the state when he was returning to base from Warri in his Highlander Jeep when the kidnappers swooped on him and whisked him away.

Narrating the incident, witnesses said the kidnappers shot repeatedly into the air to scare away passers-by at the scene of the operation just as they also prevented possible resistance.

It was gathered that the abductors abandoned the cleric’s car at the scene of the incident as they whisked him away.

A member of the local vigilante group who spoke with journalists on the incident said that even though they heard terrifying gun shots by the kidnappers, there was no way they could combat the hoodlums with their ‘shoot and run’ guns.

A vigilante said, “It looked like they came to fight a war.”

“We have so far picked about 15 shells which are bullets from their AK-47 gun.”

Policemen from Abraka Division later raced to the scene of the incident, apparently with a view to strategising on a possible rescue mission for the abducted cleric.
