CAN, PFN Reacts To The Kidnap Of Methodist Prelate, Other Clergymen In Abia | DETAILS

The Christian Association of Nigeria and the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria have frowned at the kidnapping of some Methodist Church clergymen in Abia State.

All Facts Newspaper had reported that the Prelate of the Methodist Church Nigeria, His Eminence Samuel Kanu-Uche, Methodist Bishop of Owerri, Rt. Rev. Dennis Mark, and the Prelate’s chaplain were kidnapped on Sunday in Umunneochi Local Government Area on their way returning from a programme. READ HERE

Reacting to the incident, CAN President, Olasupo Ayokunle, lamented the insecurity that has bedeviled the country, noting that nowhere is safe in the country.

The president while reacting through his spokesman, Bayo Oladeji, said;

“It is another sad commentary, tragedy, disaster and disappointment on the part of those that are managing our security architecture. Nowhere is safe in this country and we keep asking them to overhaul the security architecture but they refused.


“Now, everybody is afraid to travel either by air, road or by water. Nowhere is safe. Here is a great servant of God who has used all his youthful and present years to serve this country through the church. He has been praying for this nation and he is about to retire.


“To complete his tenure as the Prelate of the Methodist, look at how they are rewarding him. He has been going on farewell visits round the country, to every area that matters in the Methodist church, but the man was kidnapped, an old man for that matter.


“Our appeal goes to the government that they should make sure that this great servant of God is released this week. If truly we have a government; if truly our security architecture is functioning; if truly the security architecture of this country has not collapsed, he (and others) must be released.”

On his own part, the National President, Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, Bishop Wale Oke, said;

“This is a very shocking event. There is no iota of fear for men of God. Kidnapping an elderly man and a man of God, a principal leader of the Church in Nigeria is appalling. This is a very sad development.


“I want to call on the abductors to release His Eminence, Samuel Kanu, without injury to his person and they should fear God and release him without touching him in any way. They should let the fear of God guide them.


“I also want to appeal to the government from the FG to state and others not only to ensure the release of His Eminence, Samuel Kanu, but also others that have been kidnapped. Those Kaduna train kidnappers, all, we are begging them to release all those with them.”

Therefore, I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it and it will be yours
