Gunmen have abducted two Catholic priests identified as Rev. Father Peter Udo of St Patrick’s Catholic church Uromi in Esan North East and Rev. Father Philemon Oboh of St Joseph retreat center Ugboha in Esan South East local government area of Edo State.

The Priests were kidnapped between Ehor and Iruekpen along the Benin-Ekpoma Expressway on Saturday, July 2.

It was gathered that the two clergymen had attended a programme in Benin city and were returning to base when their vehicle ran into the gunmen.

The Gunmen were said to have fired several gun shots into the air which forced the car to stop. The priests were forced into the bush.

Spokesperson of the State Police Command, SP Chidi Nwanbuzor, confirmed the development in a statement on Sunday, July 3.

"This is to confirm the kidnap of two Catholic Rev. Fathers; Rev. Fr. Udo Peter of St. Patrick Catholic Church Uromi and Rev. Fr. Philemon Oboh of St. Joseph Retreat Center, Ugboha in Esan South East LGA of Edo State," the statement read.

“The Edo State Police Command was informed of the incident by the Divisional Police Officer, Ugboha, Edo State, that on Sunday, July 3, 2022, one Rev. Father Amos Abhulimen of St. Dominic Catholic Church Ugboha, reported that he was informed by the Catholic authority via WhatsApp that the above named Catholic Rev. Fathers were attacked, kidnapped and taken to unknown place by some kidnappers along Benin-Auchi Expressway between Ehor and Iruekpen Communities

"Immediately, the Commissioner Of Police, CP Abutu Yaro, dispatched policemen to the area to carry out aggressive and well coordinated manhunt in arresting the kidnappers as well as rescue the Rev. Fathers unhurt,” the statement added.

It’s always Fulani!

You seem to forget that Fulani learnt kidnapping from the South.

They also learnt highway ambush from the South.

When it comes to kidnapping and highway ambush, the south own it!

This is what the priests in Nigeria are facing and Fr. Mbaka still supported that APC should remain in government.

I pray that God save us from this Fulani/Islamic war and grant all his priests safety... Amen

When we said Buhari has a bad intention for the country, they argued with us. Today no one is safe, the Catholic Church has taken the biggest blow of this atrocious regime

Mailafia and many others died so that they can reveal what this future holds for you and I

So the things he said is already unfolding

They have already spread to the south

Buhari made their work easier by handing over all our communication to a terrorist sympathizer in the person of Pantami

So its not difficult to locate anybody

Bishop Kukah was right afterall

These gunmen are only going after christians and those criticizing Buhari

The church should as a matter of fact converge and find a lasting solution to this religious and ethnic cleansing!

Let he that has ears, listen!

It is a pity what Buhari has turned Naija into.
No one is safe now.
Even God's servants are not excluded.
