THE wife of Pastor Chris Aniamaka, in charge of Dominion
City, Kpirikpiri, Abakaliki, Ebonyi State, Pastor Ifeanyi
Aniamaka, has been kidnapped by gunmen at her residence
Vanguard learned that the victim, who was trailed in a yellow
bus while she was driving in her KIA Rio car, was
intercepted at her residence on Onwe Nkam Street,
Democracy Estate, Abakaliki and kidnapped.
In a chat with vanguard, the husband of the victim, Pastor
Aniamaka, called on the church for prayers and for security
agents across the state to ensure the speedy release of his
wife from the hands of the abductors.
He said: “This incident came as a shock to me. We just
finished our thanksgiving service for the year. My wife
decided to drive the children home and they were intercepted
at our residence.
“From the account of my children, who were instructed to
come down from the vehicle before the kidnappers took my
wife away, the kidnappers followed them until they got to
our residence at Democracy Estate.
“They threatened my wife with a gun and told my children to
get down from the car before they drove away.”
Vanguard gathered that the kidnappers, still believed to be in
the state, had made contact with the family, demanding N20
It will be recalled that two weeks ago, a Deacon and
Deaconess of Assemblies of God Church in Abakaliki were
kidnapped and later released by their abductors after
ransom was paid.
It is believed that a syndicate of young men has been terrorizing churches in Abakaliki by kidnapping members believed
to be wealthy.
