Operatives of the Kaduna State Police Command have launched a manhunt for the kidnappers of the state Chairman of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, Apostle Emmanuel Bako, and his wife, Cindy, on Christmas Day.
The command’s Public Relations Officer, Mohammed Jalige, who spoke to our correspondent on Saturday, said one other person identified as Douglas was kidnapped alongside the cleric and his wife.
The gunmen were said to have kidnapped the cleric and his wife at their residence at Albarka Camp, Fadan Kagoma, near Kafanchan in the Jema’a Local Government Area of the state.
The state Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Mr Samuel Aruwan, who also confirmed the incident, said the suspected gunmen that attacked the Albarka Prayer Camp shot indiscriminately before abducting their victims.
Aruwan, in a statement titled ‘Cleric and wife kidnapped in Jema’a LGA,’ said troops arrived at the location and pursued the kidnappers, who later escaped with the victims. (Punch)
