Abductors of Rev Fr Joseph Shekari – Kaduna Catholic Priest, have demanded the sum of 60 million Naira as a ransom for his release.
Fr Joseph was kidnapped by the bandits and also shot dead Mr Sati Musa, one of his cooks in Chawai, Kauru Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
DAILY POST reports that kidnapping, demand for ransom and violence has become an everyday occurrence in the State.
