September 24, 2016 – “Catholic Priest Rev John Adeyi Was Destined To Die In My Hands ” – Kidnapper Tells Police
Saidu Abdullahi, the suspected kidnapper who killed the Catholic Priest, Reverend John Alex Adeyi (Ph.D.) in Benue State and abandoned his corpse inside the bush, has continued to sing like a bird to police investigators.

We started running, instead of the priest to run with us, he ran in the opposite direction. He ran towards the direction of the vigilante men that were hunting us. I felt he was trying to escape.
