A Catholic Priest Rev. Fr. Elijah Wada who was kidnapped by Boko Haram last month has regained freedom.
Reliable sources informed The Nation that the priest regained freedom last Thursday evening.
“The news of the freedom of our brother is true. We thank God for his life. We are grateful to God for the cheering news,” an official in the Diocese, who is not authorised to talk to the media informed.
It is not clear how the priest was released but there are different narratives on the incident.
An official of the church told The Nation the Bishop will soon communicate with the media on the matter at an appropriate time.
The Nation gathered the priest is undergoing medical treatment and trauma counselling at an undisclosed location.
