Kidnappers of a busload members of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Region 30, Province 1, Kaduna State, have demanded N50 million for their release.
This was made known by a senior pastor of the church late Friday night
He added that eight members were kidnapped from the church bus at about 6:00 p.m while on their way for a church assignment.
“It’s true. It hapened around 6:00 p.m. They are asking for N50 million,” the RCCG cleric, who’s a Special Assistant to the General Overseer, disclosed.
A church source in Kaduna had earlier told Tribune Online that the abducted persons were “adult missionaries, male and female, from Kaduna Province 1 going to Kafanchan for prayer work.”
It will be recalled that an engineer, Mr Eje Kenny Faraday, who said he “narrowly escaped being a victim,” had broken the news on his Facebook wall with the photograph of the empty bus around 7.00 p.m. on Friday.
