May 17, 2016 – Catholic Priest, Rev Father John Adeyi’s Kidnap: Benue Governor Samuel Ortom Offers N5Million
The Governor of Benue State Samuel Ortom on Monday offered to pay N5 million for information on the whereabouts of Very Rev. Father John Adeyi, the kidnapped Vicar General of Otukpo Catholic Diocese.
Otom said in a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and ICT, Chief Tahav Agerzua, that it was regrettable that one month after the unfortunate incident, security agents were yet to apprehend the culprits and rescue the priest.
He appealed to members of the public to assist with information on the whereabouts of the priest. The governor said any person or group who offered such information would be paid N5 million as reward. Ortom said security agents had acted on previous information and combed several places without positive results, hence the imperative of making the offer.
