Gunmen have kidnapped Rev. Fr. Harrison Prhinyovaw, the Priest in charge of St. John’s Catholic Church, Obinomba, in the Ukwuani Local Government Area of Delta.

He was taken at about 8:00 p.m. on Monday in Abraka, Ethiope East Local Government Area.

NAN reports that Prhinyovaw was in transit from Warri to Obinomba.

The cleric was navigating through a bad spot in his Highlander SUV in Oria-Abraka when the incident happened.

“The kidnappers shot sporadically in the air to scare away passers-by. They abandoned the cleric’s car at the scene”, a source said.

The spokesman added that a crack team of the police was on trail of the assailants.
