Methodist Church Prelate, Samuel Kanu, 2 Others Kidnapped In Abia by etokhana: 9:02pm On May 29, 2022
The Prelate of the Methodist Church Nigeria, His Eminence, Samuel Kanu, was on Sunday, kidnapped along Enugu-Port Harcourt Expressway, in Umunneochi Local Government Area of Abia.

He was kidnapped alongside Rt. Rev. Dennis Mark, the Methodist Bishop of Owerri and the Prelate’s Chaplain, by yet to identified gunmen.

Sources told journalists that the clergymen were kiddnapped in the afternoon while they were on their way from a programme in the council area.

The Police Public Relation Officer in Abia, SP Geoffrey Ogbonna, confirmed the incident to our correspondent.

“It’s quite unfortunate. Efforts are on top gear toward his rescue as well as other priests with him.

“We solicit credible information from the public toward their rescue, please,” he said.

The insecurity in the east is intractable because non igbos are running the affairs of policing in Igboland. People who have no stakes in the survival of Igboland are heading the police, army, airforce and navy in a strange region.

When crimes happen, they prefer to sweep things under the carpet than solve the crimes, afterall they have nothing to lose, their salaries must be paid and nobody will question them.

The police report over this crime will never been seen, just like all the other crimes in the south, "we are investigating it" will be the final conclusion.

Tomorrow they will mount an additional 10 checkpoints on the express road to harassed and extort motorists, meanwhile the kidnappers may have walked out from the bush and carried out the attack, then calmly walk back into the bush.

Yet its innocent motorists that suffer for crimes. This is a gang up against the east.

That's the narrative of the government. That's an excuse to commit crimes in the south east.

Insecurity is becoming the new normal in Nigeria. If the government can't secure the people. Let's carry regulated guns to protect ourselves.

Most unfortunate, even priest are no longer sacrosanct and safe from the biafraudulent hoodlums of the East. Of course, the men in cassock injected themselves into politics which makes them vulnerable to attacks and kidnaps.

THIS IS CRAZY. IF ONLY THE PRIESTS WILL REMAIN IN THEIR LANES IN THE VINEYARD AND STOP NOSEYING INTO THE UNWHOLESOME POLITICS OF NIGERIA.

Amadioha kill cownu for all the hardened kidnappers and criminals he caused his animals to jail break , that are wrecking havoc in the east now.
If you wanna quote this to say rubbish, Amadioha destroy you also.

MANNABBQGRILLS:
May Devil kill all terrorists and kidnappers, robbers in Nigeria, from boko haram, to ipob terrorist organizations, esn, bandits, evil ones among the herdsmen, ritualists, cannibals,
kidnappers etc

Any sane, honest and hardworking Nigerian will gladly say AMEN to the above if they know they are not supporting and cheering on terrorists and murderers in this nation.

Karma knows everyone address and posterity will judge us all, whether for good or for bad..

We Rise.

North East West or South.,
Again,
May Devil kill all terrorists terrorizing Nigerians.
Kachifo!

Sorry south east. They don't want you to be president of Nigeria, they are burning your goods and properties in another region.

But you chose to clap hands for "umuoma, umuchineke, the formidable unknown gunmen who you thought would stop at killing your brothers in police work, civil defense, army and politicians.

Now, the chicken has come home to roast.
And you have nowhere to run to. Those in the north are better because even if Boko Haram kills them, Boko Haram are at least bold to admit their exploits but your unknown gunmen supporters and sponsors are all over social media denying the same people they clap hands for.

At least, Boko Haram doesn't cannibalize their people as your unknown gunmen do to fellow Igbos.

You brought antinfested woods thinking it's for your enemies. Live with it. Tufiakwa .ihere unu na eme mu

The man is technically from that area.

He went for an event that needed his presence, most likely he was tracked from the Airport.

Those killed in the East, you make it sound like they were politicians or dabbled into political matters. What if Dr. Chike Akunyili killed, he was not a politician or anything.
You really should connect your fingers with your brain before typing.
