RCCG members kidnapped in Kaduna News.
Members of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) were abducted Friday evening in Kaduna.
The gunmen are thought to be bandits terrorizing the Northwest area. Pastor Olaitan Olubiyi, RCCG’s Head of Media and Public Relations, reported the kidnapping to Tribune.
According to the spokesperson, the kidnappers have yet to reach the church or family members.
The hostages, who were allegedly from Kaduna Province 1, were on their way to Kafanchan for a church function.
In a Facebook post, an eyewitness, Eje Kenny Faraday, said he narrowly escaped being a victim. He shared the photo of the empty RCCG vehicle.
“All passengers in the bus are just kidnapped along Kachia Road, Km 63 from Kaduna,” he wrote.
The inscription on the bus reads, “The Redeemed Christian Church of God, Region 30, Trinity Sanctuary, Kaduna.”
The actual number of the victims is not known yet. The Police Command in Kaduna is expected to provide an update today.
