The Catholic Priest Abducted Last Night in Ekiti by Kidnappers (Photo)

Rev. Father Emmanuel Akingbade, the parish priest in charge of St. Benedict’s Catholic Church in Ido Ekiti, headquarters of Ido/Osi local government area of Ekiti State was abducted by a three-man gang from his residence at about 8.00pm on Tuesday.

The kidnappers were said to be demanding for a N20 million ransom.

The abduction of the cleric threw the community into confusion as youths poured into the streets to protest the incident.

They blocked the highway that passes through the town with used tyres, logs of wood and other objects, demanding for the immediate release of the priest.

The irate protesters wondered why the town is being targeted by kidnappers as several people have been kidnapped in the community and its environs in recent time.
