A twitter user, @bulamabukarti who shared the sad news wrote:
“Earlier today, the Shekau faction of BH released a video of Evangelist Bulus whom they abducted after killing 7 people at Pemi on Xmas Eve. On the same day, they kidnapped 40 loggers at Wulgo forest after killing 3. They’re reported to be presently attacking 3 villages in Borno.
Shekau is doing this to stop Christians from Xmas. Unarmed civilians are sadly at the mercy of one of the most vicious terrorist groups on earth. They’re killed and abducted and their property destroyed as if they aren’t humans. Governments need to do more to protect Nigerians.”
Also condemning the abduction, Chairman of Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, PFN, in Criss River State DR Lawrence Ekwok called the abduction of Apostle Egoh Bako on Christmas Day a callous and wicked act.
“A situation, where preachers of the gospel of Jesus Christ, have become the target of kidnappers seeking for blood money to the extent of kidnapping a minister on a day recognised worldwide as a day of peace and joy must stop”.
He said t kidnapping and armed robbery menace have become too worrisome and all people of good will should join efforts to stamp it out of the society.
He warned that “Apostle Bako must be released immediately along with his wife and others unhurt for the kidnappers not to incur the wrath of the Almighty God
”The security situation in the country today is terrible, and no effort should be spared in setting the minister o God and others in captivity free immediately”.
