No Clergyman/Catholic Priest Was Kidnapped In Anambra State…Police

The attention of Anambra State Police Command has been drawn to a news report saying a Catholic priest/clergyman was kidnapped in Anambra State along Afor junction, Nnobi road, is not true but a pure example of a sensational report.

To set the record straight, the command operatives got information about an abandoned white Lexus jeep with Reg. nos. GDD 882 PW by 8:30 pm, along Afor market junction, Nnobi road. The officers got to the scene and recovered the vehicle as they approached the police base, the owner of the vehicle came to the police station with proof of ownership, was identified and the vehicle was released to him. The victim claimed to have been abducted by yet unidentified men and was dispossessed of his personal belongings before his release.

Meanwhile, the investigation into the debriefings of the victim by operatives is still ongoing as the command wishes to state categorically that information gathered so far shows that he is not a clergyman or a priest. Further details shall be communicated
