Gunmen suspected to be Fulani herdsmen have abducted the Christian Education Director of the Evangelical Church Winning All (International), Rev. Jen Moses.
Moses was reportedly abducted on Friday evening by about seven Fulani herdsmen said to be below 20 years of age.
He was said to have been taken away by the Fulani herdsmen between Jere and Bwari on the outskirts of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja while returning from an official duty in Jos, the Plateau State capital.
His driver was reportedly shot during the abduction.
The abductors have since demanded N100 million ransom from the church.
The General Secretary of ECWA, Yunusa Nmadu, has confirmed the abduction of Moses.
Nmadu said: “The kidnappers were seven Fulani boys.
“They were below 20 years.
“The incident happened on Friday night between 8pm and 9pm.
“Reverend Jen Moses was on his way from Jos to Abuja around Jere-Bwari Road.
“The kidnappers are demanding N100 million ransom.
“The vehicle in which he was traveling was also seen on the checkpoint because his driver had a gunshot.
“The driver was advised to obtain police report before he was treated.
“I am aware that the incident was reported in a police station somewhere in Bwari Area Council.
“We will rather keep what we have been doing now to ourselves so that we don’t jeopardise investigation and efforts being made to secure his release.
“We will speak to the press after securing his release.”
