A few days after the burial of a Catholic priest who was abducted and killed in Kaduna State, a priest from the Catholic Diocese of Sokoto, Father Tony Udemezue, has been reportedly taken by unknown gunmen in the state.
Daily Sun learned that the priest was kidnapped on Monday morning from his residence in Tambuwal, the hometown of Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State.
The Director of Communications for Sokoto Diocese, Rev Fr Chris Omotosho, confirmed the incident, saying: “One of my parishioners in Tambuwal, Sokoto State – Tony Udemezue, has just been kidnapped in his own house.
“No police has responded yet despite the fact that they were called by him before he was taken away. Please let us keep him and family in prayers,” he said.
