A Catholic Priest serving in Abia State whose name is yet-to-be ascertained has miraculously escaped from gunmen believed to be kidnappers who abducted him.

Though information about the incident is sketchy, our reporter gathered that the Catholic Priest was trailed and kidnapped by the gunmen near his Parish.

Information has it that the Rev. Father was coming to perform early morning mass at the parish in one of the villages in Osisioma Local Government Area of the state, about 15mins drive from the heart of the commercial city of Aba, but never knew that he was being trailed.

Sources within the parish disclosed that two male mass servants that were with the Priest were pushed away from the car by the gunmen who drove him away to an unknown destination.

The sources stated that the incident left early callers to the church in tears as they disclosed that the priest was barely new, an action they noted would paint bad picture of the parish.

They also lamented the development could scare away the priest or others that the church may wish to deploy to the area.
