The eight members of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) who were abducted while on a church trip to evangelise have been freed.
The General Overseer of RCCG announced the news on Twitter. He said: “Today I got the exciting news that our brethren who were in captivity of kidnappers have all been released and taken to the Hospital for checkup and tests.”
“Glory be to Jesus. We pray for lasting peace in all troubled regions of the country in Jesus name.”
Last month, the group was travelling towards the town of Kafachan in the Kaduna state as part of an Easter evangelistic programme when attackers intercepted the bus and kidnapped them leaving the bus behind.
An eyewitness, Eje Kenny Faraday, then posted a picture of the empty bus and said “All passengers in the bus are just kidnapped along Kachia Road, Km 63 from Kaduna.”
At the time of the abduction, it was reported a ransom for the equivalent of £88,000 was demanded but it is unknown if it has been paid, according to International Christian Concern.
