The abducted pastor of the Baptist Church in Ungwan Makeri community of Chikun Local Government Area in Kaduna state, Rev. Elisha Numan has regained his freedom after spending 15 days in his abductor's den.

The Baptist Pastor regained his freedom on Saturday evening after an undisclosed amount was paid as ransom to the gunmen that abducted him on Wednesday August 14. 

“Our brother has been released by kidnappers on Saturday evening after we paid the ransom. We have been in trauma since he was kidnapped on August 14, considering the fact that he was not even feeling well.

“Since the security agencies seemed to be helpless in tackling these criminals, we can only pray to God to visit His wrath upon the criminals” a source told The Nation.

Rev. Joseph Hayab, Chairman of the Kaduna state chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) also confirmed the release of Rev. Numan.

“Rev. Elisha Numan was released on Saturday night after two weeks in captivity. He was released after a ransom was paid following series of negotiations with the bandits on the ransom.

“We thank God for His mercies, we pray for God’s intervention in the calamity that seemed to have befallen us as a nation.

“We  will also continue to call on the government and the security agencies to do everything within their powers to stop the increasing rate of criminality across the country, especially the increasing wave of kidnappings in Kaduna.” Hayab said.

Rev. Numan was kidnapped with his son Emmanuel at their residence in Kaduna state. Emmanuel was later released by the kidnappers who demanded N20m for the release of his father, but got into negotiations with the family afterwards.
