A Catholic priest has been reportedly kidnapped for the very second time in a year in Delta state.

Reverend Andrew Anah, a Catholic priest of the Sacred Heart Parish, Obomkpa in Delta State, has been kidnapped, ChannelsTV reports.

The State Police Public Relations Officer, Andrew Aniamaka, confirmed the abduction to Channels Television on Thursday, stating that this is the second time the same priest will be abducted.

Mr Anah was kidnapped in 2017 but was later released after an undisclosed sun was allegedly paid to the abductors.

While the circumstances surrounding the fresh kidnap are still unclear, Channels Television gathered that some residents may be collaborating with a kidnap syndicate in Aniocha north to perpetrate such crimes.

Residents say the Obomkpa/Ukwu-Nzu and now Olona Axis of Aniocha North have remained notorious for such crimes as that is the same area where the reverend was kidnapped the first time.

Other persons such as the Managing Director of a construction company, as well as the chairman of the Aniocha north Traditional Rulers’ Committee, Mr Obi Sunday Olisenweokwu, were also reportedly kidnapped around the area.

The Police, however, assured the public that it will do everything to ensure that the culprits are brought to justice and the victim is rescued.
