Around Umutu/Abraka in Ethiope East Local Government Area of Delta State, the Police in Delta State have confirmed the kidnap of four Catholic Reverend Fathers by unknown gunmen 

Though sources claimed that the four priests were abducted by suspected Fulani herdsmen, the Police said the identity of those behind the abduction were unknown.

The priests, who were said to be heading to Benin from Warri in a convoy, were reportedly waylaid on Tuesday by the arms-wielding hoodlums and were whisked to an unknown location.

The state commissioner of Police, Mr. Muhammad Mustafa, has assured that the kidnapped priests would be rescued.
