Most Rev. Nicholas Okoh, the Archbishop, Metropolitan and Primate of Nigeria, has advised Christians to be vigilant as kidnappers demanded N40 million ransom for the release of Right Rev. Moses Tabuwaye, who was kidnapped on Friday.
Okoh gave the advice in Abuja on Saturday at the 2015 Annual Pre-pilgrimage Retreat and Workshop for staff of Nigerian Christian Pilgrim Commission (NCPC) and stakeholders.
The cleric said that Bishop Tabuwaye of Gwagwalada Diocese was on his way to Awka, Anambra State, for a church programme on Sept 4, when the kidnappers took him away to an unknown destination.
“I urge all of you Christians to be very vigilant and security conscious where-ever you find yourselves.
“The issue of kidnapping is rampant in the country but we can still curtail the menace if we are vigilant.’’
“If we fail to live together as brothers in prayers, we shall perish as fools, so we should endeavour to be our brothers’ keepers,” he said..
NCPC boss, John-Kennedy Opara, assured that he would always give a sense of direction, hope to ensure that God’s plans for the commission were achieved. (NAN)
