A popular Television preacher and motivational speaker, Reverend Mike Ochigbo, has been kidnapped by gunmen in Adamawa State.

Ochigbo, who is the General Overseer of Freedom Power Chapel, was forced at gunpoint out of his home in the wee hours, of Wednesday, from his residence located in Nyibango.

Similarly, one Pastor John Moses has also been reportedly kidnapped the same night.

A resident of the area, Joseph Kuna, who pleaded anonymity, said, he learnt, Wednesday, that gunmen, invaded the residence of the Pentecostal pastor, around 2 am, and whisked him away after firing sporadically into the air.

The incident is the latest of several underreported security breaches of kidnapping for ransom in the area.

One in particular, the gruesome killing of Hinjari Yoila, a popular philanthropist and pastor, of a New Generation Church, earlier in the year, drew attention, to the plight of residents, and to insecurity in an area that has assumed notoriety.

The spokesperson for Adamawa State Police Command, SP Suleiman Nguroje, said operatives have been deployed to rescue those abducted.
