Fulani Bandits Kidnap Four Catholic Rev Sisters In Imo State

Armed Fulani bandits have kidnapped four Rev sisters of the Roman Catholic Church in Imo State. They were abducted on their way to Sunday morning mass. However, the Coalition of South East Youth Leaders has condemned the abduction of four Catholic Reverend Sisters by unknown gunmen on Sunday. It had earlier been reported that the unknown gunmen suspected to be Fulani bandits abducted the Rev Sisters while there are on their way to mass on Sunday morning along the popular Okigwe – Enugu expressway in Imo State.

The victims include Johannes Nwodo, Christabel Echemazu, Liberata Mbamelu, and Benita Agu. Reacting to the development, the President General of Coalition of South East Youth Leaders, Goodluck Ibem in a statement on Monday, alleged that Fulani terrorists have taken over the forests and bushes of Okigwe – Enugu expressway in Imo State for their illicit business despite the presence of the military and police at different checkpoints in the area.

The statement reads; “The kidnapping of Christian leaders on that expressway and other parts of the country especially the north where Catholic priests and other Clergymen are kidnapped on a daily basis is totally unacceptable. Many Catholic Priests and Christian Leaders are being kidnapped and killed by Fulani terrorists on a daily basis in Nigeria under the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari and none of the perpetrators has been arrested by security agents.

“We don’t need a mirror to look at what we already have in our hands. The Fulani terrorists have declared war on Christians in Nigeria. President Muhammadu Buhari has shown Nigerians that he lacks capacity to lead our country and we expect him to do the honourable thing by resigning his position.

“We call on the Umulolo Community and all communities along the Okigwe – Enugu expressway to mobilize their youths to guard their forests from invaders who pretend to be herdsmen when they are not. The youths should resist any form of cattle grazing in their communities. We, therefore, call on well-meaning Nigerians to wake up and defend their country from these Fulani terrorists and Jihadists who have invaded our nation to destroy it,” the statement concluded.
