At least three persons have been kidnapped by rampaging Gunmen wreaking havoc in Nigeria’s middle belt state of Plateau.
Among those kidnapped is a clergyman, the incident happened in Maigemu District of Jos East Local Government Area of the State.
The gunmen reportedly stormed ECWA Church Nuku, around 5:40 a.m. on Wednesday, and abducted the clergyman in front of his family.
Locals disclosed that the gunmen who operated for close to 40 minutes unrestrained, also kidnapped three other people: Agwom Dauda, Usman Umaru, and a woman simply identified as Sarah.
A source close to the community said the gunmen, who shot sporadically into the air to scare the people including the vigilantes and hunters, from coming out for a rescue, left with their captors in a car while others trailed behind on their motorcycles.
A relative of the clergyman, who spoke on condition of anonymity, disclosed that the kidnappers were yet to get in touch with the families for ransom
