Amid the continued confinement of the 39 students of the Federal College of Forestry Mechanisation, Afaka, Kaduna State 17 days after they were abducted by armed bandits, no fewer than eight members of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Region 30, Trinity Sanctuary, Kaduna, were on Friday abducted by gunmen.
Newsonspot.com.ng gathered that the victims were on the church bus travelling for a programme when they were attacked.
A Facebook user, Eje Kenny Faraday, broke the news on his page with a picture of the white vehicle on the evening of Friday, March 26.
“All the passengers in this bus were just kidnapped along Kachia Road, 63 km from Kaduna.”
Newsonspot.com.ng also noted that a credible source and an official of RCCG, who spoke on condition of anonymity, confirmed the report.
The source reportedly said:
“They were eight in number on the bus. They were going to Kachia in preparation for the church’s Let’s Go a Fishing Easter programme. The gunmen took them out of the bus and put them in their own operational vehicle.”
The gunmen are suspected to be bandits who have been terrorizing the Northwest region.
Head, Media and Public Relations of RCCG, Pastor Olaitan Olubiyi, confirmed the abduction.
The Police command in Kaduna is expected to provide an update today.
