Lawmaker condemns abduction of American missionary in Kogi
THE Senator representing Kogi Central in the Red Chamber and candidate of the Progressive Peoples Alliance (PPA) for Kogi Central Senatorial election, Senator Nurudeen Abatemi-Usman, has condemned the abduction of an American missionary, Rev. Mrs. Phyllis Sortor in Kogi State.
The 80-year-old missionary worker with Methodist Church resident in Emi-Woro community along Ajaokuta/Okene Road was reported to have been abducted by unknown gunmen within the church premises on Tuesday.
In a statement issued by Abatemi-Usman’s media aide, Michael Jegede, the Senator described as callous and ruthless the action of the kidnappers, wondering what they intend to achieve from putting an old innocent woman who has dedicated her life to the service of God and humanity in Nigeria through such an excruciating pain.
