Mrs. Ifeanyi Aniamaka was abducted last weekend while returning from a thanksgiving service in her husband's church.

The wife of a pastor is currently in the hands of kidnappers who abducted her last weekend at their residence in Abakaliki.

Mrs. Ifeanyi Aniamaka who is the wife of the Pastor of Dominion City in Kpirirkpiri, Abakaliki, Ebony State was intercepted at her residence in Onwe Nkam Stree, Democracy Estate, Abakaliki, by the kidnappers who had trailed her in a yellow bus

Mrs. Ifeanyi Aniamaka was driving in her KIA Rio car with registration number DK487BEN when she was kidnapped at about 3pm on Saturday, December 13.

According to a report, Pastor Chris Aniamaka described the kidnapping of his wife as a shocking and enjoined the church and security agents across the state to ensure a speedy release of his wife from her abductors.

Pastor Chris Aniamaka also told Vanguard that his wife was kidnapped while returning home with their kids from the church’s thanksgiving service.

“We just finished our thanksgiving service for the year and my wife decided to drive the children home and they were intercepted at our residence. From the account of my children who were instructed to come down from the vehicle before the kidnappers took my wife away, the kidnappers followed them gradually from behind until they got to our residence in Democracy Estate. They threatened my wife with a gun and told my children to come down from the car before they drove away,” the heartbroken pastor told Vanguard.

The kidnappers according to reports have made contact with the family demanding the sum of N20 million for the release of the victim.

The Ebonyi State Police Command has confirmed that the police had visited the scene of the incident working hard to ensure the safe release of Mrs. Ifeanyi Aniamaka.
