Unknown gunmen abduct four catholic nuns in Imo

Armed men attacked again on Sunday, this time kidnapping four venerable sisters from the Catholic Church.

They were kidnapped on the now feared Okigwe-Enugu road, which has become a harbor for kidnappers and armed robbers.

Many people have been kidnapped recently, including Nigerian Methodist primates, Catholic priests, and travelers.

Last week, a Catholic priest, Rev.  Chinedu Nwadike was kidnapped along the way. He was released two days later.

In the latest developments, four Revd. sisters were kidnapped on their way to morning mass.

The four kidnapped Rev. sisters are sisters Johannes Nwodo, Christabel Echemazu, Liberata Mbamalu, and Benita Age.

Punch correspondents obtained a statement from the Sisters of Jesus the Savior (Generalate) revealing that the women of God had been kidnapped from the Okigwe-Umulolo area of ​​the highway.

A statement issued by Sister Zita Ijedro, general secretary of the religious group, called on all believers to pray for the speedy and safe return of the victims.

The statement which was tagged “sad news” read, “sisters Johannes Nwodo, Christabel Echemazu, Liberata Mbamalu, and Benita Agu are kidnapped.

“Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, it is with great pain that we bring to your notice the kidnapping of four of our sisters mentioned above.

“The sad event of their abduction occurred around Okigwe-Umulolo area this morning shortly after the sisters were on their way to thanksgiving mass of our sister.

“We implore for intense prayer for their quick and safe release. May Jesus the savior listen to our prayers and may our mother Mary intercede for the unconditional release of our dear sisters.”

State Police spokesman Micheal Abattam has yet to respond to an inquiry into the abduction at the time of this report.
