The archbishop of the Anglican Province of Kwara of the Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion), His Grace, the Most Rev. Israel Amoo, has condemned the kidnap of one of its Bishops, Rt. Rev. Oluseye Aderogba, Bishop of Jebba Diocese.
Archbishop Amoo, made this call in a signed statement in Ilorin.
He decried the incessant killings, abduction, and outright kidnap of innocent Nigerians in the country.
He called on President Muhammadu Buhari, the Inspector-General of Police, and the Commissioner of Police in Oyo State to work towards the immediate and unconditional release of the kidnapped Bishop.
It would be recalled that the Bishop was kidnapped with his wife and driver while returning to Jebba from an Episcopal engagement in Yewa area in Ogun State.
“The primary duty of government is securing lives and properties, the alarming rate of kidnapping and other criminal activities in Nigeria is worrisome.
“We implore the President and all the people in charge of the nation’s security architecture to stem the unfortunate tide.
“We urge all people of goodwill to pray for the quickest release of the Bishop, his wife, and driver safety,” the Bishop added.
