Police nab pastor in Imo over abduction of Catholic priest

The police have arrested Izuchukwu Anoloba, a 35-year-old pastor, over the kidnap of a Catholic priest, Fidelis Ekemgba in Imo State.

Fidelis Ekemgba, 45-year-old, is the priest in charge of St. Peters Catholic Parish in Umunohu Amakaohia in the Ihitte/Uboma Local Government Area (LGA), of the state.

Anoloba, who confessed to the crime, said he got N1.5 million as his share from the kidnap.

While parading the suspects, the state Commissioner of Police, Rabiu Hussaini, said the priest was in captivity until a N5 million ransom was paid.

The suspect, who confessed to the crime, described himself as a ”disgrace to the body of Christ.”

The suspect begged for forgiveness saying,“I am a pastor with Apostolic Church of Christ in Lagos. I got N1.5 million from the kidnap of the priest. I never knew I would be arrested. I regret my actions because I am now a disgrace to the body of Christ and my family”.
