Another Enugu Catholic priest, Reverend Fr Theophilus Ndulue has been abducted by unidentified gunmen in Enugu dtate. 

He was kidnapped on his way home along Amansiodo road on Friday evening while coming back from pastoral council meeting.

Fr Ndulue who was ordained a Catholic priest on July 3, 2010, is the parish priest of St. Patrick's Catholic church, Ihuonyia, Amansiodo in Ndiagu Oghe, Ezeagu Local Government Area.

The incident had brought to eight Catholic priests kidnapped in less than eight months among them, two were killed.

Reacting to the development, the Enugu Catholic communications director, Reverend Father Benjamin Achi, who confirmed the abduction of Father Ndulue Saturday morning, said the Church was yet to get the details of the story at the time of filing this report.

Also, the state police command, through its spokesman, SP Ebere Amaraizu has confirmed the kidnap of the Catholic priest, stating that the priest was kidnapped with the chairlady, Catholic women organisation in the parish, Stella Nwodo, who  was later released.

He said police have intensified manhunt on the inductors of the priest to get him freed.
