A pastor named Usman Umaru was kidnapped by gunmen on Wednesday in Plateau State’s Jos East Local Government Area.
When the gunmen stormed the clergyman’s church in the Maigemu neighbourhood early on Wednesday, they also kidnapped two other people. The preacher is affiliated with the Evangelical Church Winning All.
The event was reported to The PUNCH in Jos on Wednesday by Michael Madaki, a youth leader in the Maigemu community.
Security officers who were notified have been searching the bushes in the council area in an effort to free the abduction victims ever since the gunmen abducted the cleric, according to Madaki.
