In the six-minute video, the church leader calls on authorities to secure his release. He was kidnapped on January 3 during a raid on the major town of Michika near the Cameroon border. The pastor told his family and colleagues, “don’t dry, don’t worry, but thank God for everything.”
“I have never been discouraged because everything is in the hands of God. God who made them to take care of me and leave me alive will touch them … So, I am appealing to fellow reverends, particularly my President, Rev. Joel Billy, who is a strong man of love, that he will do his best to speak with our governor and other necessary agents for my release.
“By the grace of God, I will be together with my wife, children and colleagues and if the opportunity has not been granted, then maybe it is the will of God. All well-wishers and colleagues should be patient.
“By the grace of God, I will be together with my wife and children and colleagues… don’t cry, don’t worry, but thank God for everything.”
