Unknown Gunmen: Orji Kalu sad over kidnap of Methodist Prelate

Chief Whip of the Senate, Orji Uzor-Kalu, on Monday condemned the abduction of the Prelate of the Methodist Church Nigeria, Samuel Kanu-Uche, in Umunneochi Local Government Area (LGA) of Abia State.

POLITICS NIGERIA learned that the cleric was kidnapped by some unknown gunmen alongside the Methodist Bishop of Owerri, Rt. Rev. Dennis Mark, and his (the Prelate’s) chaplain on Sunday.

Reacting, Kalu asked Governors Okezie Ikpeazu and Hope Uzodinma of Abia and Imo states respectively, to work towards the immediate release of the Prelate.

“The growing insecurity in the South East is becoming an everyday sad news. Yesterday (Sunday), the Prelate of the Methodist Church Nigeria, His Eminence, Rev Samuel Kanu-Uche was kidnapped and up to this moment, he hasn’t been released,” Kalu said via his verified Facebook page.

“I call on the Governors of Abia and Imo states to intensify security in the two Neighborhoods so as to contain the criminal elements around these areas.

“The two Governors should also make efforts to rebuild the Ihube -Okigwe -Uturu roads because those routes have become the den of criminals.

“The Governors should make efforts to ensure that the Prelate is rescued alongside others and to also get the people behind this dastardly act arrested.”
