3 Kidnapped Seminarians Regain Freedom In Kaduna


Barely 48 hours after their abduction, the three Kidnapped
Seminarians from Christ the King Major Seminary in
Jema’a Local Government Area of Kaduna State, on
Wednesday, regained their freedom from their abductors.
The Chancellor, Catholic Diocese of Kafanchan, Reverend
Father Emmanuel Uchechukwu Okolo, confirmed their
release on Wednesday night.
Recall that bandits on Monday night, attacked seven
seminarians at the school chapel. They succeeded in
kidnapping three, while others escaped.
According to him, “with hearts filled with joy, we raise our
voices in a symphony of praises as we announce the
return of our Three Major Seminarians, who were abducted
by armed persons from the Chapel of the Seminary at
Christ the King Major Seminary, Fayit Fadan Kagoma in
Jema’a Local Government Area, Kaduna State, on Monday
11 October, 2021.”
He said, barely 48 hours after their kidnap, the beloved
three brothers were released by their abductors.
“We want to thank all those that have offered prayers and
entreaties for the quick release of our Seminarians and
others who are still in the dens of their kidnappers. We
pray God to hasten the release of those who are still in
the hands of their captors.
“All our priests are directed to kindly celebrate Mass of
Thanksgiving to God tomorrow, Thursday, 14th October
2021, for the quick and safe release of our Seminarians.
“May Our Lady of Guadalupe intercede for us and all those
that are still in captivity!” he said.
