Gunmen Kidnap 2 Catholic Priests in Plateau


By  Kamsi Anayo

Gunmen suspected to be bandits have kidnapped two Catholic priests in Plateau state.

Two Catholic priests, Frs. Kenneth Kanwa and Jude Nwachukwu of

The Saint Vincent de Paul Fier in Kwande, Shendam Diocese of Plateau State, have been abducted by gunmen.

The priests were kidnapped on Thursday last week by gunmen, who whisked them to an unknown destination before those within the vicinity could notice the incident.

The parish priest, St. John Mary Vianney, Kwande, Shendam Diocese, Fr. Cornelius Nweke, who confirmed the incident on Sunday, enjoined all Catholics to pray for the release of the priests.

The news of their kidnapping has been generating a lot of controversy and insinuation, but Fr. Nweke urged all parishioners to disregard all rumours and continue to pray for their safe return.
