Statement on the kidnap of the Prelate of the Methodist Church Nigeria
We thank God for the safe release of the Prelate of the Methodist Church Nigeria, Most Rev Dr. Samuel C. Kanu Uche, the Bishop of Owerri, Rt. Rev. Dennis Mark, and the Prelate’s Chaplain, Very Rev. Jeremiah Shittu, by gunmen whilst on official duty in Abia state after attending an event on Sunday 29 May.
We pray for others in Nigeria who have recently been abducted and are still being held, and those anywhere in the hands of violent kidnappers.
