Missionary kidnapped in Nigeria

Revd Phyllis Sortor was taken by several masked men during an incident at a school in Kogi state, central Nigeria.

She was working for the Free Methodist Church.

In a statement the Church said: "The U.S. Embassy has been notified, and the State Department and the FBI are working with local authorities to find and rescue her.

"We are calling on the U.S. church to join together in prayer for Phyllis' safety and speedy release."

It's reported her kidnappers opened fire in the school before taking her away.

In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.

Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the USA is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.

For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.

Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
