“Since the gunmen took the Reverend Father away, we have not heard anything either from him or the abductors up till this afternoon.
“This is so sad. But we are praying for him that no harm will befall him wherever he is.”
Confirming the development, Alabo Alfred, the spokesman of the police command in Plateau, said the force has deployed officers of the anti-kidnapping unit to the community.
“Our men are already working to ensure that the Reverend father regains his freedom and apprehend those behind the abduction.”
