The family of Evangelist Martins Oko-Oboh has called on the Nigeria Police Force and other security agencies in the country to help find the missing evangelist, his wife and three children after attacks on Nandu and Kabamu villages in Kaduna State by suspected herdsmen.
John Oko-Oboh, the evangelist’s younger brother, made the call in Abuja yesterday.
Speaking with newsmen, he said the family got missing after the herdsmen attacked Nandu and Kabamu villages in Sanga Local Council of Kaduna State on June 24.
He added that the evangelist had lived in the village for many years before the recent attack, which claimed so many lives, noting that the matter had been reported at the police station in Kabamu village.
“We have tried to get across to my brother and his family, all to no avail. Nobody has also seen their bodies anywhere. I am appealing to members of the public to avail us of information that will lead to the whereabouts of my brother and his family,” he said.
He further appealed to the Federal Government to intervene in the incessant attacks by suspected herdsmen in the country to ensure peaceful coexistence.
No fewer than 38 persons were killed in separate attacks in Nandu and Kabamu villages recently.
