Eight members of the Redeemed Christian Church of God who were abducted by gunmen in Kaduna have regained their freedom.
This was announced by the General Overseer of the RCCG, Pastor E. A Adeboye in a tweet on Thursday.
The victims who are members of the RCCG Region 30, Trinity Sanctuary in Kaduna were on their way to Kachia for an evangelical outreach programme before their bus was ambushed by bandits on March 26.
Following their abduction, the bandits demanded N50m ransom to secure their release.
It is however unclear whether ransom was paid before they regained their freedom.
It was learnt that three of the Abductees had been freed on Tuesday before the remaining five regained their freedom on Thursday.
According to the cleric, who announced the release, the victims were taken to the hospital for treatment immediately after their release.
Adeboye wrote, “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.”
