The insider said members of the church are facing a major problem on how to raise the large sum as it’s against the rules of the church to pay for ransom. He also stated the church is solely depending on the family members and relatives of the victim to source for ransom.

ALSO READ:  The Federal Government said it has reached out to the British Government over the threat by the British Parliament to impose sanctions on Nigeria’s officials for their roles in the End SARS protests. The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, disclosed this yesterday, November 24, while fielding questions from State House correspondents at the end of the weekly virtual Federal Executive Council, FEC, meeting presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari at the Council Chamber, Presidential Villa, Abuja. Onyeama said the Nigerian government reached to present its own side of the story. He said the lawmakers are not responsible for imposing sanctions but added that it is necessary to give to the U.K. government Nigeria’s own position to enable them to have a balanced perspective. He said: "Yes, we have reached out to the U.K government. The meeting that took place were Parliamentarians and they don’t speak for the U.K. government which acts for the United Kingdom and has also heard the side of the (Nigerian) government regarding everything that has happened. "So, we have been in touch with them and engaging with them. And of course, as in any democracy, the members of parliament are able to also air their view. "But what is important is that a balanced picture is made available to them before they take any decision. "The U.K. government has been briefed. There was a U.K. Parliamentarians meeting and the U.K. government, which acts for the United Kingdom has also heard the side of the (Nigerian) government regarding everything that has happened."

 

“And the other thing we are more worried about is that when a reverend father is abducted, it is against the rules of the church to pay for ransom, except the family members, friends or relatives of the victim can take such responsibility,” he said.
