4 Catholic Priests Abducted In Delta Regain Freedom by Naijalog: 12:52pm On Nov 10, 2018
Four Catholic priests who were abducted on November 6 by unknown persons in Delta have regained their freedom, the News agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.

The Nigeria Police, Delta Command, confirmed on Saturday that the priests were rescued near Abraka, Ethiope East Local Government Area of the state.

According to the Police Commissioner , Muhammad Mustafa, the victims were rescued on Friday evening at a location he did not disclose.

The victims were: Rev. Fathers Victor Adigboluja of the Ijebu Ode Diocese; Anthony Otegbola, Abeokuta Diocese; Joseph Ediae, Benin Archdiocese; and Emmanuel Obadjere, Warri Diocese.

They were said to have been on their way to the Seminary of All Saints Uhiele-Ekpoma in Edo on Nov. 6 when they were kidnapped.

The police boss, who earlier said that one of the suspects had been apprehended in connection with the crime, also assured that the police command was trailing the others.

He assured that the other suspects would be arrested and prosecuted.

“They were rescued on Friday and we are on the trail of the other suspects.

”We do not encourage ransom, so no ransom was paid,” Mustafa said.

A reliable source told reporters the priests were taken to Benin City for medical attention immediately they regained their freedom.

According to the source the priests were escorted to Benin City by the joint police and military team that rescued them.

The captors had earlier demanded for N4 million as ransom to effect their release.

Lucky them.
They'd now go back to their various parishes aggressively hunting offerings, chasing donations and lobbying tithes to recoup their money lost to ransom.
