Rev. Fr. Victor Ishiwu, the parish priest of St. Jude's Catholic Church in Eburummiri, Ibagwa-Aka, and Igbo-Eze South Local Government Area of Enugu State, was allegedly abducted early on Saturday while leading adoration prayers.

The kidnappers broke into the worship area after midnight and began firing randomly into the air.

Further information revealed that the worshipers, including Fr. Ishiwu, fled for cover and dispersed to various areas.

However, a witness claims that the abductors, who spoke pidgin English and Fulani, followed the cleric to the Parish House and threatened to set the church buildings on fire if he didn't leave.

The kidnappers allegedly forced themselves into the Parish House through the church chapel they had allegedly cut open after the cleric ignored their warning.

When they obtained entry to the cleric's hiding place in the Parish House, they allegedly took him away to an unidentified location.
