March 29, 2014 – Pastor Kidnapped Baby In Akure, Demands Ransom From Parents

According to Saturday Vanguard, a Pastor and another person are currently in police detention after kidnapping a 24 month-old baby girl in Akure.

The baby girl was later rescued in Ughelli area of Delta State, Nigeria.

Pastor Okpara Emmanuel Chigozie, the founder of Believers Prayer Ministry in Orji area of Owerri, Imo State and 25-year-old Chinonye Anufor are currently in police detention.

A sum of N50m ransom was requested from the parents of the baby by the Pastor and his cohorts and have been negotiated downwards to N5million before the suspects were rounded up.

Saturday Vanguard gathered that the detectives trailed the fleeing suspects to Ughelli where a woman in whose custody the baby was kept by the pastor was arrested.

After the baby girl was kidnapped in Akure, the Ondo state capital, the Pastor and other suspects fled to Balyesa state.

The Police Image Maker Wole Ogodo told Saturday Vanguard exclusively that the baby was rescued from the suspected member of the kidnap gang late yesterday.

Ogodo added that the pastor kept the baby in the custody of the middle aged woman in Ughelli.

He pointed out that acting on a tip-off, the detectives stormed the hide out of the kidnappers where the woman and the baby were found.

The Police spokesman said that the detectives after rescuing the baby returned to the state with the baby at about 1am on Saturday.

It will be recalled that while parading the Pastor and other suspected criminals, the new Commissioner of Police Isaac Eke said the pastor was arrested in his apartment.

Eke said detectives from the state CID in Akure after the complaint was lodged swung into action and arrested one 25-year- old Chinonye Anufor who led them to the apartment of the Pastor in Owerri.

    This news is not straight forward a journalist can not report simple incident with clarity. How did a kidnapped baby get to warri whose baby, where in akure, these are simple things people need to avoid be classified as rumours monger or a gossiper.
