The armed men reportedly invaded his residence and forcefully took him and his son away in the early hours of Wednesday.

This was coming less than two weeks after the abduction of Pastor Jeremiah Omolewa of the Living Faith Church, Ungwan Romi also in Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

Omolewa was killed by his abductors and the wife kidnapped while the son escaped.

The kidnappers demanded a N50m ransom before they could release the pastor’s wife.

She, however, regained her freedom after the payment of N3m ransom, according to a source.
