Kidnappers of Nigerian Catholic priest, 44 others yet to apply

The kidnappers of the Catholic priest in charge of St Mary’s Catholic Church, Sarkin Pawa, the Reverend Father Leo Raphael Ozigi and 44 other villagers on March 27 have not yet made any demands.

However, Daily Trust understood that the abductors had called the Niger State branch of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), requesting the appointment of two members of the community to negotiate on behalf of all those abducted.

CAN’s secretary in the state, Rev. Raphael Opawoye, told our correspondent that “the kidnappers said the bargaining would be collective; with only two community contact persons. So we are still waiting to hear from them. They haven’t made any requests yet.
