Amidst the rampaging insecurity in the country, unknown gunmen have abducted the General Overseer of the Freedom Power Chapel International, Mike Ochigbo, in Adamawa.
The founder of the new-generation church with its headquarters in Yola was abducted alongside one of the church’s pastors, identified as John Moses.
The two clerics were reportedly attacked and abducted at Ochigbo’s residence in the Nyibango area of Yola on Tuesday night.
Confirming the incident, the Adamawa State Police Command Public Relations Officer, SP Suleiman Nguroje, said the Commissioner of Police, Afolabi Babatola, had deployed operatives of the command drawn from the Special Rapid Response Team (SRRT), Crack Squad, and other tactical squads to rescue the victims.
Nguroje said the police operatives would execute a tactical day-and-night operation on criminal hideouts and black spots around the state to rescue the victims.
