Abducted Pastor Killed after M1m ransom payment


Kidnappers have killed a clergyman with the Evangelical Church Winning All, Pastor David Musa.

The latter was Pastor of Obajana chapter of ECWA in Kogi State.

He was murdered by his abductors after they received N1m in ransom from his loved ones.

It happened that he went to his farm on Saturday, November 11, 2023 in Obajana, under the Lokoja Local Government Area of Kogi State where he was abducted.

In turn, his abductors got in touch with his family and church members to demand N20m ransom but only N1m was raised and delivered to them at their den, according to report.

The sad news of his killing was broken on the church members’ WhatsApp group via a message.

It read, “It is with a heavy heart but in total submission to the will of God, I write to inform you that the abductors of our brother, Pastor Musa David, have killed him after collecting a ransom of N1m last night. Let our prayers be with the family, the church, and the DCC in this trying moment.”
