“Father Obadjere was travelling with his clergy friends to Ekpoma for their school’s old students meeting. The incident happened at Abraka as they were coming down from the bridge.
“It was on Tuesday. They were in four vehicles. The kidnappers could not track the first two cars in front. The kidnappers looked like Fulani Herdsmen. They abandoned the vehicles the Priests were driving in. So it was the Priests in the other two vehicles that alerted other Priests in Warri Diocese of the development.
“Two of the Priests are from Benin arch diocese, one from Abuja and the other from Warri Diocese,” eyewitness report claimed.
While police in the state are yet to ascertain the story, it was learnt that the Reverend Fathers are still in the custody of their abductors.
