The Nigerian Christian Pilgrim Commission (NCPC) has stated that the Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, Kano State Chapter, Rev. Adeolu Adeyemo, be held responsible for one Samuel Taiye who absconded in Israel.

The Executive Secretary of NCPC, Rev. Tor Uja, stated this when the Director-General of Leadership Newspapers of Nigeria, Abdul Gombe, paid him a visit in his office on Wednesday.

Uja noted that Taiye is from Osun State but resides in Kano state, with his wife, four children and attends the Apostolic Church in Kano state.

According to him, “The NCPC team has its doubt on Taiye because of the type of document he presented.

“The Pastor of his church called to plead on his behalf and later the CAN state’s chairman put a call through to the commission to recommend Taiye and guaranteed that he will take responsibility if Taye should abscond.

“I have called them this morning to provide Taiye, his wife and four children; they are presently under the custody of the Department of State Security, Kano.

“The state chairman must take responsibility and make sure Taiye comes with the last flight back to Nigeria.”

He stated that this would serve as deterrent to other intending absconders and their guarantors.
