Abuja – Yet another kidnapping of a priest in Nigeria. Fr Jude Onyebadi, who works in the parish at Saints Peter & Paul Catholic Church in Issele-Azagba , about 10 miles southeast of Issele-Uku, was kidnapped from his farm September 26. The gunmen also abducted three workers from the farm along with the priest, but released them after a few hours. The priest’s family members, in collaboration with some volunteers in the area, had immediately organized a search for the kidnapped priest but without any results.
