Three Kidnapped Catholic Seminarians Regain Freedom
October 14, 2021
The three kidnapped students of Christ the King Major Seminary in Jemaa Local Government Area of Kaduna State have been released.
The chancellor of the Catholic Diocese of Kafanchan, Reverend Father Emmanuel Okolo, said the three seminarians were released by their abductors on Wednesday.
But there is no indication that any ransom was paid for their release and the police are yet to issue a statement on the development.
While thanking God for the quick release of the seminarians, Father Okolo also prayed for the release of other kidnap victims who are still in the hands of their captors.
The three seminarians were abducted by bandits suspected to be kidnappers this October.
The abduction and release of the seminarians is one of the many kidnap cases in Kaduna and other northwestern states where banditry has become rife.
Following the series of attacks, several states in the region had introduced a string of measures to tackle the growing wave of insecurity.
