  • 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

Three abducted students of Christ the King Major Seminary in Jemaa Local Government Area of Kaduna State have regained their freedom.

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.

EKO HOT BLOG recalls that the seminarians were abducted by bandits suspected to be kidnappers on Monday October 11.

They were, however, released barely 48 hours after their abduction.
