Gunmen Invade Tambuwal’s Hometown, Kidnap Catholic Priest

Gunmen have reportedly stormed the home town of the Governor of Sokoto state Aminu Tambuwal and kidnapped a priest, Tony Udemezue under the diocese of Sokoto.


The priest was abducted in the early hours of Monday morning from his residence in Tambuwal in Sokoto State.


The Director of Communications for Sokoto Diocese, Rev. Fr. Chris Omotosho confirmed the incident.


Fr. Omotosho said: “One of my parishioners in Tambuwal, Sokoto State – *Tony Udemezue* has just been kidnapped in his own house (home town of the executive governor of the State – Aminu Tambuwal).


“No police has responded in the last 1 hour (since 2 am) despite they were called by him before he was taken away.


“Pls let us keep him & family in our prayers.”


Meanwhile, the families of the victims of the Abuja-Kaduna train attack on Monday protested the continued stay of their loved ones in the den of terrorists.


Naija News earlier reported that some of the relatives had accused the Federal Government and the Nigerian military of sabotaging their efforts to rescue their family members.
