A reverend father of the Catholic Church in Kaduna State, Joseph Bako, who was kidnapped by bandits two months ago, has died in the custody of his abductors.
The victim reportedly spent eight weeks in captivity before his death.
The Chancellor of the Catholic Archdiocese of Kaduna, Reverend Father Christian Okewu Emanuel, disclosed this on Wednesday.
But police authorities are yet to confirm the incident.
According to the chancellor, Father Bako was ill before his abduction and the abductors did not allow him go with his drugs for proper medication.
In his reaction, the Catholic Archbishop of Kaduna, Most Reverend Matthew Ndagoso, has sympathised with the family of the late clergymen over the incident.
He also commiserated with the entire Catholic community of St John Kudenda and assured them of his fraternal closeness and prayers.
Father Bako was kidnapped by bandits at his pastoral residence of Saint John’s Catholic Church, Kudenda in Chikun Local Government Area on March 8, 2022.
