Rev. Fr. Joseph Shekari of St Monica’s Catholic Church, Ikulu Parish in the Catholic Diocese of Kafanchan has been kidnapped.

The Diocese has confirmed the abduction of one of its priests.

Fr. Shekari was abducted from his home at about 11.30 p.m. on Sunday, according to the Diocese’s Chancellor, Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Okolo, in a statement released on Monday.

He asked for everyone’s prayers, promising that the Church will do everything legally necessary to ensure the priest’s swift and safe release.

The Chancellor, on the other hand, cautioned the faithful and the general public not to take the law into their own hands in the aftermath of the kidnapping.

“While we solicit for intense prayer for his quick and safe release, we equally wish to call on all and sundry to refrain from taking the laws into their hands. We will use every legitimate means to ensure his quick and safe release.”
