The Sisters of Jesus the Saviour announced that four of their Sisters were kidnapped in Nigeria’s Imo state on Sunday.
“It is with great pain that we bring to your notice the kidnaping of our Sisters: Johannes Nwodo, Christabel Echemazu, Liberata Mbamalu and Benita Agu,” said an Aug. 21 announcement from the community’s secretary general, Sister Zita Ihedoro.
The abduction took place near the Okigwe-Umulolo axis of the Okigwe-Enugu Expressway while the religious were on their way to a Mass.
“We implore for an intense prayer for their quick and safe release. May Jesus the Saviour listen to our prayers and may Our Mother Mary intercede for the unconditional release of our dear Sisters,” Sister Zita wrote.
