Ab­duc­tors of ECWA direc­tor in­sist on N100m ran­som

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Lami Sadiq, Jos

The Youth Wing of the Chris­tian As­so­ci­a­tion of Nige­ria (YOWICAN) yes­ter­day said there are high in­di­ca­tions that the ab­ducted Chris­tian Ed­u­ca­tion Direc­tor of the Evan­gel­i­cal Church Win­ning All (ECWA) Rev. Jen Moses was be­ing tor­tured by his ab­duc­tors who are in­sist­ing on N100 mil­lion for his free­dom.

The rev­erend was said to have been ab­ducted by kid­nap­pers Fri­day night along Jere-Bwari road in the FCT where he was sched­uled to at­tend a train­ing.

YOWICAN Na­tional Pres­i­dent Daniel Kadzai told Daily Trust that the ab­duc­tors had con­tin­ued to reach out to the church and were in­sis­tent on the N100 mil­lion ran­som. He said, “We have com­mu­ni­cated with the direc­tor and based on his speech, it seems to us that he is be­ing tor­tured. We are wor­ried, we have been pray­ing and we ap­peal to Nige­ri­ans to pray with us.”

Kadzai who is also a mem­ber of ECWA con­demned what he de­scribed as an at­tack on Chris­tian cler­ics and lead­ers and called for the un­con­di­tional re­lease of Rev. Moses.

“The church is look­ing for the most con­ducive and safe means of get­ting the Chris­tian ed­u­ca­tion direc­tor out of cap­tiv­ity and we are con­fi­dent in the abil­ity of the Nige­rian po­lice es­pe­cially since its break­through in the ar­rest of no­to­ri­ous kid­nap­per, Evans,” he said.

Daily Trust could not reach the Gen­eral Sec­re­tary of ECWA, Rev. Yunusa Nmadu, as he was out of town and pos­si­bly out of net­work cov­er­age.
