Archbishop Uka Uka Osim of the Brotherhood of the Cross and Star, his wife, Anne Osim and son, Roland Uka Osim, have been kidnapped.

They and three other clergymen of Brotherhood of the Cross and Star, were abducted in Abia State on May 1, 2024.

They were travelling to Awka, capital of Anambra State, on evangelical duties when the armed men accosted them.

Other three priests also kidnapped were Azuka Ochu, Moses Okafor and Anderson Akwazie.

Their abduction was confirmed by the administrator of the spiritual organisation in Abia State, BCS, Bishop Denis Onuoha.

He said four days after, the abductors have not reached out to anybody.

“We are very worried but we are assured that the Almighty Father who they worship and work for with total devotion will help them out”, he said.

While he called on security agencies to step in and rescue the clergymen, he said they are deep in prayers believing that the Archbishop and his brethren will be rescued unhurt.

Police authorities in both Anambra and Abia States are yet to react to the incident.
