Gunmen abduct Catholic priest in Edo

Some unknown gunmen on wednesday abducted another priest of the Catholic Diocese of Auchi, Edo State.

The priest, identified as Rev. Fr. Lawrence Adorolo, was reportedly kidnapped along Auchi-Okpella highway.

Confirming the news at a press conference in Auchi, the Catholic Bishop of Auchi Diocese, Most Rev. Gabriel Dunia, said the priest was kidnapped along the Auchi-Okpella highway, Wednesday evening.

“Rev. Fr. Adorolo was on his way back from Auchi to his parish, St. Benedict Catholic Church, Okpella, when he was abducted by unknown gunmen at the bad spot near Okpella, at about 6.00pm on Wednesday evening,” he disclosed.

The Bishop condemned the act, saying that the abductors committed an abominable act by keeping a priest who offers selfless service to God and humanity for ransom.

According to him, ”The abductors have made contact with the church for ransom. The church does not pay ransom, as it is not a profit-making organisation.”

He, therefore, called on security agencies to ensure unconditional release of the priest.
