Kidnapping: 9 days after, Imo Catholic priest regains freedom

The priest in charge of St. Paul’s Catholic Church Parish, Osu in Isiala Mbano local government area of Imo state, Reverend Father Michael Asomugha, who was kidnapped recently has been freed by his abductors, nine days after he was abducted.

This was revealed Sunday by one of the residents and a parishioner, who introduced herself as Ijeoma Njoku, but refused to go into details about how Asomugha was freed.

She did not also say if ransom was paid before he was released.

She said: “Our catholic priest was released because of our prayers. All of us were in prayers, both the Reverend Fathers and the Reverend Sisters.

“The youth and women in the church prayed for the release of our priest and God answered our prayers.

“What I can’t say is whether the man came out after payment of ransom. But I am sure we prayed and God answered our prayers.”
