Family Declares Popular Bishop Missing


Members of the Asobo family in Mbagen, Buruku Local Government Area of Benue State, have raised the alarm over the disappearance of their son, Bishop Sylvester Asobo.

The Head of the Asobo family, Mr. Theduis Asobo, in a statement, yesterday, said their missing son was declared wanted by the police in Kaduna State for alleged blasphemy on March 5, 2018.

According to the family, Bishop Asobo, the leader of the Kingdom Citizens International Bible Church has neither been arrested nor seen anywhere since the Kaduna State Police Command declared him wanted in 2018.

The Police Command declared the Bishop wanted for allegedly serially preaching against a particular Muslim religious sect.

Theduis Asobo said: ”The police in declaring him wanted, urged anyone with useful information about him to report to the nearest police station.”

The Bishop, who is 54 years old, was last seen in the Birnin Gwari area of Kaduna State on March 5, 2018, and his whereabouts have remained unknown since then.

Efforts to speak with the Kaduna State Police Public Relations Officer, Mansir Hassan, proved abortive as his phone number did not go through.
