BEVERLY HILLS, April 08, (THEWILL) – Eight members of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) abducted by gunmen on March 26 in Kaduna State have regained freedom.
THEWILL had reported that members of RCCG, Region 30, Trinity Sanctuary, Kaduna, were attacked on March 26 near Doka along the Kachia-Kafanchan Road, on their way to a programme.
The kidnappers had demanded a N50 million ransom.
But in a tweet on Thursday, General Overseer of RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, said all the eight members had been freed and taken to hospital for examination.
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.”
Although it is unclear if any ransom was paid, sources close to the freed victims, said they were released in batches.
Three of them were said to have been released by their abductors on Tuesday, while the remaining five persons regained freedom on Thursday.
