Nigerian prelate laments kidnapping of children
Catholic World News - September 30, 2010
A leading Nigerian prelate is lamenting the wave of kidnappings-- including the recent abduction of 15 children from a school bus-- taking place in the nation’s capital.
“everyone is a victim of these bandits,” said Archbishop John Onaiyekan of Abuja. “Even the Church has suffered abductions of her members. For six days, we have had heard no news of the accountant of Catholic University. However, there is no specific intention to attack the Church, as the bandits kidnap anyone, even local tribal leaders.”
