Kidnapped Methodist Prelate regains freedom


Kidnapped Prelate of the Methodist Church Nigeria, Samuel Kanu-Uche, has regained freedom.

Religion Nigeria had reported that the cleric was kidnapped alongside the Methodist Bishop of Owerri, Rt. Rev. Dennis Mark, and his (the Prelate’s) chaplain on Sunday.

They were kidnapped in the Umunneochi Local Government Area of Abia State.

Details of their release are sketchy at the time of filing this report.

But a very reliable source from the church confirmed their release on Monday evening.

“To God be the Glory. His Eminence, Dr. Samuel Chukwuemeka Kanu Uche; his Chaplain, Very Rev. Abidemi Jeremiah Shittu and the Bishop of Owerri, Rt. Rev. Dennis Mark, have regained their freedom a few minutes ago. Thank you all for your prayers,” the source said.

The Christian Association of Nigeria and the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria had condemned the kidnapping of the clerics.
