Feb 21, 2013 – Kidnapped Mountain Of Fire MFM Pastor Rescued In Aba, Abia state
Mr Emmanuel Agbesi, the kidnapped Pastor of the South-East Regional Headquarters of the Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries at Aba in Abia, has been rescued by the police.
Agbesi was kidnapped by gunmen on 18 February.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that two suspects, Ogbonnaya Ugwumba and Kelechi Ugwumba have been arrested by the Aba Area Police Command in connection with the incident.
The police said that the suspects were being interrogated in the course of investigations to arrest the three fleeing abductors. A senior police officer told NAN on condition of anonymity that Agbesi was rescued the same day with his car, a Gulf Saloon with registration number KSF 281 AH, near the Coca-Cola Depot along the Owerri-Onitsha highway in Imo.
The officer said that the suspects now in custody were the children of the landlord where the church was situated, who had previously threatened to physically assault the pastor.
When contacted, the Commissioner of Police in Abia, Alhaji Mohammed Abubakar, told NAN that he would get the details before making public statement on the matter.
“I will get back to you. I am yet to get any report on the matter from the Aba Area Police Command but I will call them to find out,” he said.
