A Catholic Nun identified as Sister Blessing Olowojoba has been reportedly kidnapped in Kogi state by suspected kidnappers. According to a Nun from the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus (EHJ), the sister was kidnapped in Okene, recently. The sister who was identified as Biola Victoria, urged people to pray for the safe return of the victim from the clutches of the kidnappers.
She expressed that an attack on a member of EHJ is an attack on the church itself. She asked members to keep praying for the servant of God to return unharmed.
The Sister called on the state Police command to ensure the safe return of sister, Olowojoba who has been in captivity for some days.
She wrote: “Please bombard the heavens with your cries and thanks. Remember we recently did it to God’s ultimate glory. We can do it again for our Beloved Religious. ”
“Please carry this prayer petition with you as you sleep tonight and as you go to Mass on Sunday and until we secure Sr. Blessing’s freedom from the captivity which is not hers. Any evil attack on one of us, especially on our ordained servants of God, is an attack on the Church.”
Meanwhile efforts to confirm the kidnap incident from the spokesperson of the Kogi State police command, William Aya was unsuccessful as phone calls and text messages were not responded to as at press time.
