Kidnappers Invade Church, Abduct Members in Kogi State.

Members of the Living Faith Church in Osara Community, Adavi Local Government have been kidnapped by unknown gunmen.

The event occurred over the weekend when members of the church were said to be rehearsing within the church premises in preparation for Sunday service.

It was gathered that the kidnappers shot sporadically into the air to scare away residents and security personnel while whisking the victims into the forest.

The Chairman of Adavi Local Government Council, Joseph Omuya Salami, confirmed the abduction of three members of the church, through his special adviser on media and publicity, Habeeb Jamiu.

He said the council chairman had visited the scene in the company of the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) of Osara Division, adding that the council was working in synergy with security agents to see how the victims will be rescued.

“Even before now, we had a series of meetings with the people of Osara Community and the entire farm center. And I told them to restrict every night activities for now, and whoever wants to hold any activity in the night should get appropriate quarters informed and also get their approval to ensure that adequate security is provided, but out of their disobedience, they chose otherwise,” the chairman said.
