BREAKING: UNKNOWN GUNMEN INVADE BISHOP KUKAH CHURCH, KIDNAP PRIEST



 Unidentified Gunmen early Wednesday broke into one of the parishes presided over by the Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Sokoto, Matthew Hassan-Kukah.


It was learned that the armed hoodlums kidnapped two priests and two others in the rectory of St. Patrick’s Catholic Church, Gidan Maikambo, in the Kafur Local Government Area of Katsina State.


Kukah’s Sokoto Diocese covers Katsina, Zamfara, Sokoto, and Kebbi States.


The Director, Social Communications of the Catholic Diocese of Sokoto, Rev. Fr Christopher Omotosho, confirmed the incident.


According to him, the Catholic Diocese of Sokoto is under attack and no information has been gotten as to the whereabouts of the abductees.


‘’The parish priest and his assistant Rev. Frs. Stephen Ojapa, MSP, and Oliver Okpara and two boys in the house were kidnapped.


“ No information as to their whereabouts. Kindly pray for their safety and release.”


Recall, on May 14, hoodlums torched and vandalised some parishes presided over by Kukah in Sokoto over his condemnation of the gruesome murder of Deborah Yakubu by her Muslim colleagues.


The 200-level Home Economics student of Shehu Shagari College of Education in Sokoto was murdered and burnt after being accused of blasphemy against Prophet Muhammed.
