Insecurity Heightens In Imo State As Gunmen Abduct 4 Catholic Reverend Sisters On Their Way To Church

Four Reverend sisters of the Catholic Church were abducted along Okigwe-Enugu Road in Imo State, on Sunday.

The Sisters Of Jesus The Saviour (Generalate) identified the victims as Reverend Sisters Johannes Nwodo, Christabel Echemazu, Liberata Mbamalu and Benita Agu.

In a statement, Zita Ihedoro, Secretary-General of the religious body, said the sisters were kidnapped on their way to “morning mass.”

It 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 the 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.”

Many people, including the Primate of the Methodist Church of Nigeria, Catholic priests, and travelers had been kidnapped along the Okigwe-Enugu Road recently.

A Catholic priest, Rev. Fr. Chinedu Nwadike was last week kidnaped along the road.
