Popular Catholic Priest, Fr. Gbuzuo Kidnapped In Anambra

Rev Father Basil Gbuzuo, a popular Catholic priest in the Onitsha Archdiocese of Anambra State, has been kidnapped.

The incident occurred on the main Nkpor-Obosi route, and the kidnappers have yet to demand payment.

Rev Fr Prudentius Aroh, Chancellor of the Archdiocese of Onitsha, said in a statement that Archbishop Valerian Okeke has requested prayers for Fr. Gbuzuo’s release.

The statement by Fr Aroh read: “With sadness, we write to inform the general public of the kidnap of one of our priests, Rev. Fr. Basil Gbuzuo. The sad incident occurred yesterday morning, Wednesday, 15th May 2024 along the Eke Nkpor-Obosi bypass at about 8 am.

“He is a priest in residence at Holy Trinity Catholic Parish, Ogidi. Until now, the abductors have not established any contact with anybody.

“His Grace, Most Rev. Valerian M. Okeke, the Metropolitan Archbishop of Onitsha, invites all Christ’s faithful and all men and women of goodwill to earnestly pray for the quick and safe release of the priest as we intensify our efforts to ensure his freedom.

“We commend our brother, Fr. Basil, to the powerful intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of Priests, for his speedy release from the hands of his kidnappers”.

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.
