By Dipo Awojobi – A senior pastor of one of the leading churches in the country, Deeper Life Christian Ministry has been kidnapped in Okene, Kogi State.
The incident was said to have happened on Monday night, at his residence, when the respected Pastor returned home from the church’s weekly Monday Bible Study.
A source who pleaded anonymity, because he was not authorised to speak on the matter, said the kidnappers, who stormed the pastor’s residence, while he was with his son, who got married recently and other members of the family, took the pastor and drove away to unknown destination.
The source said that the kidnappers are demanding for N10 million as ransom before their captor will be released.
Meanwhile, in a circulated text message the church is calling on its members to intensify prayers for the immediate and safe release of the pastor.
The notable pastor is said to have served the church in high capacity in Kogi, Plateau States, FCT and some other African countries.
