Nigerian Bishop kidnappers demand £132,000 as Anglican leader urges vigilance

From Nigeria-

The kidnappers of a Nigerian Anglican bishop abducted near the capital Abuja have asked for a 40 million Nigerian Naira ( £130,178) ransom for his safe release.

It is believed that Rt Rev Moses Bukpe-Tabwayen, Bishop of Gwagwalada, was abducted in Edo state as he was travelling from Abuja to Onitsha, Anambra state on 3 September. His car was found just outside Abuja.

In 2013, another Anglican bishop was abducted by armed men who took him and his wife into a forest in the Niger Delta. A week later, Ignatius Kattey, his wife and their driver were released unarmed.
