Though the Maiduguri Diocese has yet to issue a statement on the incident, reliable sources told our correspondent that it happened while Fr. Wada was travelling from Buma Parish in Shani to Damaturu for his friend, Rev. Fr Yakubu Inda Philibus’ 10th-anniversary thanksgiving Mass at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Damaturu.

It was also learned that Fr. Wada would travel to Maiduguri to relieve the Cathedral Administrator, who would be embarking on a new post within the Diocese.

According to sources, when the priest arrived in Biu, he took the risky Damboa Maiduguri road instead of the Buratai/Buni Yadi road.

The kidnappers have made contact with church authorities, according to investigations, but little has been done.
