Wife of the Anglican Bishop also expressed regrets over the security lapses in the state and called for serious concern and attention to avert future re-occurrence.

In his message Governor Amaechi has, however, enjoined Christian religious leaders to intensify prayers for the unconditional release of the Archbishop Ignatius Kattey.

The Governor added his administration is doing everything humanly possible to ensure the unconditional release of Archbishop Kattey.

Amaechi urged the family of Bishop Kattey to remain strong in their prayers and trust in the Lord for His intervention and release of the kidnapped Anglican Archbishop by unknown gunmen.

Governor Amaechi further appealed to the kidnappers of Bishop Kattey to urgently effect his release to enable him continue his ecclesiastical call to the service of God and humanity, which he stressed, is for the benefit of all Nigerians and betterment of society.

Also speaking at the event, Chancellor of the Diocese of the North, Sir Emeka Ichioku expressed confidence that Archbishop Ignatius Kattey will return to his family unharmed and healthy.

Earlier, Chairman of Clergy Association of the Diocese of the Anglican Communion of Niger Delta North, Venerable Richard Okpara also offered prayers for the family of Kattey and God’s intervention for his unconditional release.
