Catholic Priest Abducted In Kaduna

Rev. Father Gabriel Ukeh, the presiding Catholic priest of St. Thomas Parish, Zaman Dabo Community, in Kaduna State’s Zango Kataf Local Government Area, was captured by suspected bandits early Sunday, June 9.

The Vicar General (Pastoral), Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Kazah, confirmed this to journalists in a statement released, saying

“While we solicit for fervent prayers for his urgent and safe release, we equally condemn this act of incessant kidnappings for ransom of innocent and defenceless citizens of our communities, and we call upon the government to horn its security intelligence as we approach the celebration of Sallah.

As we work with security operatives for his quick release, we wish to call on all to stay away from taking the laws into their hands. We will use every legitimate means to ensure that Fr. comes back to us safe and sound.

Through the intercessions of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of Priests and Religious, may Jesus the crucified hearken to our prayers and hasten the unconditional release of His Priest and every other abducted person.”

A Gentle Reminder: Every obstacle is a stepping stone, every morning; a chance to go again, and those little steps take you closer to your dream.
