General Overseer of an Abuja-based church kidnapped

The General overseer of Abuja-based church, Great Calling Ministry, Pastor Francis Irabor was  kidnapped by unknown gunmen while driving along the Lokoja-Abuja Rd in Abuja this past weekend

According to reports, the Pastor and his driver identified as Matthew Obamhen were driving in his Prado SUV along the Lokoja-Abuja expressway when a peugeot 406 with a concealed plate number double crossed his car, dragged him out, forced him into the trunk of their car and then sped off. 
 
After the incident, the pastor's driver drove the car to his house in Utako, Abuja and narrated what happened to his family members. The case was reported to the Utako police station. His family say they haven't heard from him or his abductors.

Evil souls.. Since EFCC have being able to curb all their acts(stealing, 419, drugs and the likes) they need to source other means to make money and now its kidnapping of men of God! They will still fail. Micah 2:1. Psalm 34:16. BishopDammy#

"..If I'm voted into power, within the next four years, the issue of power will become a thing of the past. Four years is enough for anyone in power to make significant improvement, and if I can't improve on power within this period, it then means I CANNOT DO ANYTHING EVEN IF I AM THERE FOR THE NEXT FOUR YEARS" - Goodluck Jonathan, Vanguard newspaper, 2011.

I am a good follower/reader of this blog ( linda blog), I like to log into it because it gives good and current issues /news around the world especially Nigeria. But to me from my observation , the people commenting here are just bunch of lazy people who are just commenting just for them to win the prices.O.k, everyone read the comments yourself - something like , na wa, good, na dem sabi etc , not even a single common sense commet that will inpact anyone reading it. It is bad. Linda please give your prices to those whose comments prove that they even read the news at all to know what you are talking about. Mtchew
