Most Rev. Nicholas Okoh, the Archbishop,
Metropolitan and Primate of Nigeria, has
advised Christians to be vigilant as kidnappers
demanded N40 million ransom for the release
of Right Rev. Moses Tabuwaye, who was
kidnapped on Friday.

Okoh gave the advice in Abuja on Saturday at
the 2015 Annual Pre-pilgrimage Retreat and
Workshop for staff of Nigerian Christian Pilgrim
Commission (NCPC) and stakeholders.

The cleric said that Bishop Tabuwaye of
Gwagwalada Diocese was on his way to Awka,
Anambra State, for a church programme on
September 4, when the kidnappers took him
away to an unknown destination.

“I urge all of you Christians to be very vigilant
and security conscious where-ever you find
yourselves.

“The issue of kidnapping is rampant in the
country but we can still curtail the menace if we
are vigilant.

“If we fail to live together as brothers in
prayers, we shall perish as fools, so we should
endeavour to be our brothers’ keepers”, he
said.

NCPC boss, John-Kennedy Opara, assured that
he would always give a sense of direction, hope
to ensure that God’s plans for the commission
were achieved. (NAN)
