Nigerian diocesan chancellor kidnapped


The chancellor of the Church of Nigeria’s Diocese of Ohaji-Egbema was kidnapped on Saturday and is being held for ransom, the Rt. Rev. Chidi Collins Oparaojiaku said today.

Speaking to reporters in Imo State, Bishop Oparaojiaku said the former chief judge of Abia State and diocesan chancellor, Justice Nnenna Oti, was driving to Anambra State when her car was pulled over and she was abducted.

“This is a sad mood for us, what we are expected to do at this time is to continue in our prayers for God Almighty to touch the minds ff the kidnappers to release her,” he told the Vanguard Newspaper.

The Imo State Police is investigating the abduction but has not yet released a statement on her disappearance. Bishop Oparaojiaku said a ransom demand has been received.
