Catholic Priest Abducted in Delta State, Nigeria, Regains Freedom

The Catholic priest kidnapped in Delta State, Samuel Agwameseh, has regained his freedom barely 24 hours after his abductors demanded for a N20m ransom.

Agwameseh was kidnapped over the weekend by some unknown gunmen, who seized him while returning from a function on Saturday.

Abductors of the priest had established contact with his family and demanded N20m as ransom to free him.

Director of Social Communication, Catholic Diocese of Issele-Uku, Delta State, Charles Uganwa, confirmed to our correspondent this evening that the kidnapped priest had been freed by his abductors.

Though no further information was given concerning the ransom demanded, but family, friends and the Diocese of Issele-Uku were happy to see the priest was back in one piece.
