Two Catholic priests, Frs. Kenneth Kanwa and Jude Nwachukwu of Saint Vincent de Paul Fier in Kwande, Shendam Diocese of Plateau State, have been abducted by gunmen.
The priests were kidnapped on Thursday last week by some people suspected of being gunmen, who whisked the two of them to an unknown destination before those within the vicinity could notice the incident.
The parish priest, St. John Mary Vianney, Kwande, Shendam Diocese, Fr. Cornelius Nweke, who confirmed the incident on Sunday, enjoined all Catholics to pray for the release of the priests.
