Gunmen In Bayelsa Kidnaps Pastor, Demands N300m As Ransom, N200k As Money For Phone Calls

Such madness! A pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church of
God, New Anointing Chapel in Yenagoa, Bayelsa, Mark Christmas, has been
kidnapped by unknown gunmen in his hometown.
The pastor’s wife, Evelyn Christmas, said her husband was
kidnapped with two other persons on October 18.
She said the incident happened in their hometown,
Biseingbene, Ekeremor Local Government Area, Bayelsa. Mrs. Christmas said her husband was invited to the community
for a meeting by unknown persons on the fateful day.

“When he got to the community, he found out that the
invitation was not only false but a devilish plan to kidnap him,” she said.
Mrs. Christmas said the pastor had stayed over two weeks in
their custody as they demanded N200, 000 for all their phone calls and N300
million as ransom.
“It is over two weeks and I have not heard or seen my
husband but some of our family members, who live in the village, told me that
they spoke with them.
“I planned to contact the police, but the family members
said that I should not involve the police to avoid incurring more danger.
“The reason is that my husband might be killed by the
hoodlums if the police is involved in the matter,” she said.
Mrs. Christmas described the situation as ”very painful”.
She said she prays her husband comes home alive.
The Police Public Relation Office in Bayelsa, Asinim
Butswat, said the family had not reported the matter to the police.
“They have not reported the incident to us, but if they come
to us, we are ready to mobilise ourselves,” Mr. Butswat said.
