Baptist Church pastor kidnapped in Kaduna




Gunmen


Gunmen have kidnapped Reverend
Elisha Noma of Nagarta Baptist Church in Angwan Makiri, Chikun Local Government
Area of Kaduna State.

The gunmen were said to have stormed the pastor’s residence early Wednesday.

The cleric’s son, Emmanuel
Elisha, was initially taken but set free to get the ransom ready in five days.

This comes nearly two weeks
after a resident pastor of the Living Faith Church in Angwan Romi, Kaduna,
Jeremiah Omolewa, was killed.

“They picked me together with
my father. But after a while into the bush, I was released and they went away
with my father. One of them was dressed in military camouflage.

“As they released me, they threatened that if we fail to bring money in five days even though they didn’t mention the specific ransom, they will kill him,” Emmanuel said.

He added that they have been sceptical about reporting the incident to the police because “when we had similar experience in the past and we contacted them, they did not do anything about it.”
