Gunmen have kidnapped a priest, Rev. Nwika Gbinu in Onne, Rivers State.

According to the cleric’s elder brother, Ledum, the gunmen invaded the priest’s residence at St Mary’s Catholic Church in Eleme Local Government Area at about 2am on Monday.

Ledum said the whereabouts of the priest is still unknown as the gunmen have not contacted the family or the church.

He said the matter has been reported to the police.

“My brother is not a politician and there was no harvest or launching in the church that would make us suspect that he was keeping money,” he said.

Police spokespersonBen Ugwuegbulam said the search for the priest has commenced.
