Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom has offered to pay N5 million for information on the whereabouts of the Vicar General of Otukpo Catholic Diocese, Very Reverend Father John Adeyi, who was kidnapped about a month ago.
The governor however, regretted that security agents were yet to apprehend the culprits and rescue the priest despite acting on previous information and combed several places without positive results, hence the imperative of making the offer.
Ortom, in a statement yesterday by his Special Adviser on Media and ICT, Tahav Agerzua, appealed to members of the public to assist with information about the clergy’s whereabouts, and that any person or group who offers such information would be paid N5 million as reward.
Governor Ortom also solicited sustained prayers for the release of the priest, adding that with God, nothing is impossible.
He also expressed sympathy to the family of the late General Gabriel Kpamber (retired), who lost his life in a fatal motor accident at the weekend and prayed God to comfort them and the entire people of the state for the irreparable loss.
The Governor said after serving his country meritoriously in the armed forces, the late Kpamber also offered dedicated service to the state as chairman of the Benue State Independent Electoral Commission, BESIEC, and requested peaceful repose of his soul.
