Abductors Of Catholic Priest Demand ‘N100m Ransom’

BREAKING: Councillor shot dead as gunmen abduct Ekiti commissioner

The Kidnappers of Reverend father Matthew Dajo of the St Anthony Catholic Church in Yangoji village, Kwali Area Council in Abuja suburb, are reportedly demanding for N100 million ransom before the victim will be set free.

WITHIN NIGERIA recalls that the Catholic priest was abducted on Sunday, November 22 around 9:47:pm.

It was also gathered that the gunmen stormed the catholic priest’s residence with sophisticated weapons and then whisked him away.

A member of his church told Daily Trust that contact was established with the kidnappers on Saturday, and they have demanded N100 million as ransom.

“And you know since he was abducted, his abductors did not call until on Saturday and they are demanding for N100 million, but I don’t know at what figure has the man who is negotiating with them has been able to arrive at,” he said.

The insider said members of the church are facing a major problem on how to raise the large sum as it’s against the rules of the church to pay for ransom. He also stated the church is solely depending on the family members and relatives of the victim to source for ransom.

“And the other thing we are more worried about is that when a reverend father is abducted, it is against the rules of the church to pay for ransom, except the family members, friends or relatives of the victim can take such responsibility,” he said.
