A Catholic priest of the Sacred Heart Parish, Obomkpa, Reverend Andrew Anah, has been kidnapped.

The Delta State Police Public Relations Officer, Andrew Aniamaka, confirmed the abduction to Channels Television on Thursday, stating that this is the second time the same priest will be abducted.

Mr Anah was kidnapped in 2017 and was later released after an undisclosed ransom was allegedly paid to the abductors.

While the circumstances surrounding the fresh kidnap are still unclear, Channels Television gathered that some informants may be collaborating with a kidnap syndicate in Aniocha north to perpetrate such crimes.

Residents say the Obomkpa/Ukwu-Nzu and now Olona Axis of Aniocha North have remained terrifying in recent times as that was the same area where the reverend was previously kidnapped as well as other individuals.

The Managing Director of a construction company was recently kidnapped as well as the chairman of the Aniocha north Traditional Rulers’ Committee, Mr Obi Sunday Olisenweokwu.

The Police, however, assured the public that they will do everything to ensure that the culprits are brought to justice and the victim are rescued.
