The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye has confirmed the release of eight members of the church who were kidnapped in Kaduna State.
Adeboye, through his verified Twitter handle said: “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 check-up and tests. Glory be to Jesus”.
The eight members of the church were abducted on the Kachia-Kafanchan highway on March 27, 2021 while travelling in the church’s bus.
The abducted persons were on their way to Kachia for an evangelical outreach programme before their bus was ambushed by the bandits.
Reports say the bandits had stopped the bus conveying the persons and immediately transferred the eight passengers to their vehicle, and zoomed off to an unknown destination.
