PLATEAU: Two abducted clerics regain freedom

TWO clerics, Evangelist Nuhu Bakwa and his pastor friend, abducted on Monday by gunmen in Plateau State, have regained their freedom.

It was learnt that the two victims were released last night after their relatives paid an undisclosed amount as ransom.

The two clergymen were abducted on Monday at Bisichi in Jos South Local Government Area of Plateau and whisked to an unknown destination while on their way to Jos, the state capital.

Commissioner of Police, CP Bartholomew Onyeka, said men of the Command were making concerted efforts to track down perpetrators of the incident.

He charged the people of the state to be wary of the undesirable elements and their internal collaborators in various communities engaging in the kidnapping.

“Based on the study I have carried out, there is no case of kidnapping without an indictment. It must be somebody who might have known such a person personally. It is very reckless to stop somebody in the road and kidnap him; there must be prior information,” he said
