OWERRI—A chieftain of All Progressives Congress, APC, Rev. Emmanuel Ebomuche, has been kidnapped by unknown persons in Imo State.
Vanguard gathered that the man went to church and had not returned to his family at press time.
A Church member told Vanguard: “The man went to church and has not returned to his family house till now. We do not know if it is a kidnap case.
“There has been no telephone call from the man or his supposed captors.”
Rev. Ebomuche, who once served as Chairman of Imo State Oil Producing Area Development Commission, ISOPADEC, is currently the APC Chairman of Ohaji/Egbema Local Government Area.
The stories surrounding his disappearance remained sketchy at press time, but one of such stories had it that the man was kidnapped after Sunday service at Government House Chapel, Owerri.
It was not clear why and how the Pentecostal pastor became the kidnappers’ target, but Vanguard gathered that Rev. Ebomuche was one of the top pastors that superintends at the chapel.
A police source, who did not want his name in print, confirmed the kidnap story, adding that police had commenced investigation.
