Two kidnappers have been nabbed while trying to carry out an attack on a pastor during a church service in Edo state.
Naija News understands that four alleged kidnappers invaded the church premises during the service and requested to see the general overseer of the church, Prophet Isaac Abraham.
The members of the church who had never seen their faces before in the congregation suspected something fishy and they went ahead to detain and interrogate the visitors before the congregation.
Naija News learnt that the suspects upon interrogation confessed to being sent by another pastor to kidnap his rival in the ministry.
Four suspects were said to have visited the church but two out of them who were armed were said to have fled when they realised that their other two members have been arrested.
The names of the arrested suspects were given as Gideon Daniel, and Oseni Igbiti, a security guard, who both confessed after they were nabbed by church members in the process of carrying out the attack.
They shared message conversations between them and their sponsor and revealed they were paid N200,000 each to carry out the attack.
Prophet Isaac Abraham, whose church was attacked, claimed that when he confronted the men who escaped, they confessed to have been sent by a rival pastor in the area.
