Barely 18 days after the Vice Rector of the Queen of the Apostle Spiritual Year Seminary, Imeize Owa in Ezeagu Local Government Area of Enugu State, Father Arinze Madu, was kidnapped at the seminary gate, another Catholic priest, Reverend Father Theophilus Ndulue has been abducted by unknown gunmen.
According to reports, Fr. Ndulue, who is the parish priest in Ihuonyia, Amansiodo in Ndiagu Oghe, Ezeagu Local Government Area of the State, was kidnapped on his way home on Friday evening.
Fr. Ndulue’s abduction makes him the eighth Catholic priest to be kidnapped in less than eight months. Two of the priests were found dead.
Confirming the latest incident, the director of the Enugu Catholic Communication, Rev. Fr. Benjamin Achi, said on Saturday morning, “A colleague working in that area just informed me. That’s all. No extra information.”
Also confirming the incident, Enugu State Police Command, Ebere Amaraizu said the incident took place along Amansiodo road on Friday night while the priest was driving to his Parish.
According to Amaraizu, the priest was kidnapped with a woman identified as Stella Nwodo.
He added that the woman had been rescued by operatives of the Operation Puff Adder, who “swung into action immediately the kidnapped incident was reported,” adding that the police have intensified efforts to free the priest.
