January 19, 2016 – Pictures: Christ Embassy Church, CEC Pastor Kidnapped In Yenagoa Bayelsa Released, Rescued By Fishermen

Pastor Ehimare, a popular CEC member in Yenagoa Bayelsa has regained freedom from his kidnappers.

Ehimare and 11 others regained their freedom 14 hours after they were abducted by sea robbers and kidnappers along the Brass-Yenagoa waterways.

He said 12 of them spent 14 hours in their kidnappers den.

Hear him:

“Initially they thought we were important person they will hold down and demand ransom. So, what they did was look into our faces and ask, honourable, who are you? Are you not an honourable?

“And when they got to me I told them I am a pastor. When they discovered that most of the passengers were normal civil servants and pastor we were released and dumped near a fishing point at around 11pm.

“It was from there that we were eventually rescued through a fishing canoe to Okoroma town, where we slept till this morning.

“It was not a pleasant experience but I thank God for his divine mercies and for rescuing all of us alive. It was horrifying but I want to give God all the glory.”

To God be all the glory.

    While all thanks be to God for thier safe return, I wonder if its the lack of jobs or just laziness and people looking for a means to make quick money that lead them to release the Pastor and his members after learning that they couldnt get much out of them, since they weren’t politicians?

    When is this Federal Stipend going to come into effect? When are the promised jobs coming into effect? One graduates and cant find gainfull employment….Frustration leads to a lot of things…..

    Dont get me wrong, what they did was wrong, but……
