Oluwakemi Omolewa, Pastor Jeremiah Omolewa's Wife Freed By Kidnappers

The widow of the slain resident pastor of Living
Faith Church (aka Winners’ Chapel International),
Romi New Extention, Kaduna, Jeremiah Omolewa,
has been released by her abductors.
The couple was attacked last Sunday along
Kaduna-Abuja Road. The cleric was shot dead,
his wife was taken captive but his son escaped
the attack.
Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria
(CAN) in Kaduna, Rev. Joseph Hayab, confirmed
the widow’s release on Friday, Igbere TV reports.
He said Oluwakemi Omolewa was released late
Thursday following the payment of an undisclosed
sum of money as ransom.
Hayab said the church spent over N300 million on
payments of ransom to kidnappers in last four
years in Kaduna, while over 500 Christians were
abducted within the same period.
He added that more than 20 churches, especially,
those located in communities along the Kaduna-
Abuja road have been closed as people living in
those villages have since relocated following the
activities of kidnappers.
“It is sad to know that the church alone, from our
statistics -ECWA Church, Baptist Church,
Anglican Church, Catholic Church and many other
Churches in Kaduna whose members have been
kidnapped, have had to cough out between
N200,000 to N8 million to kidnappers to secure
their release.
“We don’t collect our offerings to give kidnappers,
our offerings are supposed to be used for
evangelism and catering for the needy. Now the
money we are supposed to use for evangelism so
that evil in the society would be reduced is being
spent on paying ransom to kidnappers,” he said.
Presiding Bishop of the Living Faith, David
Oyedepo, had on Thursday cursed the killers of
the pastor.
