Nigerian troops, on Sunday, foiled an attempt to kidnap the Catholic Bishop of Orlu Diocese, Most Reverend Augustine Ukwuoma at the Orlu Diocesan Catholic Secretariat, BSC Road, Orlu Imo State.

The Catholic Bishop was saved after troops responded to a distress call at about 2:30am on Sunday 31 October 2021.

A statement from Brigadier General Onyema Nwachukwu, the Director, Army Public Relations, read:

“TROOPS FOIL KIDNAP OF BISHOP OF ORLU CATHOLIC DIOCESE

Troops conducting Exercise GOLDEN
DAWN Sector 3 have foiled an attempted kidnap and robbery of Most Reverend Augustine Ukwuoma at the Orlu Diocesan Catholic Secretariat, BSC Road, Orlu Imo State.

The troops in response to a distress call at about 2:30am on Sunday 31 October 2021, swiftly moved to the scene forcing the assailants to take to their heels thereby abandoning their mission. The Bishop, his Secretary and Assistant Secretary are safe and unhurt.

Troops will continue to deny freedom of action to members of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra/Eastern Security Network (IPOB/ESN) and other criminal gangs operating within the sector especially as the elections in Anambra State draws nearer and during the yuletide season.

Members of the public are advised to report suspicious movement of criminals as well as hide outs of the outlawed IPOB/ESN to law enforcement agencies as the group is only out to intimidate, steal and kidnap law-abiding citizens for ransom.
