Nigerian Archbishop calls for end to crime wave in Delta region

THE ARCHBISHOP of Nigeria has condemned the kidnapping of a British toddler in the Niger Delta, and has called for an end to the crime spree that threatens to destabilise the country’s oil producing region.

Archbishop Peter Akinola wrote that ‘the spate of kidnapping’ was a ‘worrisome trend.’ He expressed relief that three-year-old Margaret Hill had been released unharmed, but asked ‘How long will this go on?’

Thank you, Lord for her deliverance.

I had a Romanian student at the boarding school were I taught 2+ years ago whose parents went to work for a petro company in the Delta region.  They brought him to our school rather than put him at risk.  The kidnapping has been going on for a long time.
