Kidnappers yesterday stormed the residence of the pastor in charge of Nagarta Baptist Church, Reverend Elisha Noma in Angwan Makiri, near Udawa, Chikun local government area of Kaduna State and whisked him and his son away.
The son of the pastor, Emmanuel Elisha, who was later released in the bush disclosed this to the media in Kaduna yesterday.
According to him, the armed kidnappers, numbering about 20, stormed the village around 1:30 am Wednesday and forced their way into the pastor’s house.
“ They came around 1 am and were about 20 and started hitting at doors but nobody opened. They then forced their way into houses and vandalised properties.
“ They carted away some valuables including mobile phones and clothing in my mother’s box.
“They picked me together with my father. But after a while in the bush, I was released and went away with my father.
“One of them was dressed in military camouflage. As they released me, they threatened that if we didn’t bring money in five days even though they didn’t mentioned the specific ransom.
“ We are yet to report to the police because even when we had similar experience in the past and we contacted them, they did not do anything about it. So.”
This was coming barely two weeks after a pastor in charge of Living Faith Church, Angwan Romi, Kaduna, Jeremiah Omolewa, was killed and ransom was paid to free his abducted wife.
