Fulani Herdsmen Kidnap ECWA Director
Reports suggest the cleric was kidnapped during the weekend between Jere and Bwari, on the outskirts of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja while on an official meeting.
During the attack, his driver was shot and has been receiving treatment in Bwari hospital in Abuja.
The kidnappers are said to have placed a call to the church and family members demanding N100 million as ransom.
The spokesperson of the FCT Police Command, Anjuguri Manzah, said he is yet to receive any report on the kidnap.
“We have not received any report of such an incident. Yes, at that end, Bwari is a very big point and the biggest town. So, oftentimes, people describe everywhere as Bwari which shares boundary with different states”, he stated.
But when contacted, the General Secretary of ECWA, Yunusa Nmadu, confirmed the abduction to Northern City News.
He said, “The kidnappers were seven Fulani boys; they were below 20 years. The incident happened on Friday night between 8 and 9pm. Reverend Jen Moses was on his way from Jos to Abuja around Jere-Bwari Road. The kidnappers are demanding N100m ransom".
