3 Abducted Kaduna Seminarians Regain Freedom

Three out of the four seminarians with the Catholic Good Shepherd Major Seminary, Kakau in Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State, abducted by armed men have regained their freedom.

The seminarians were abducted on Jan. 9, when gunmen said to be in military uniforms invaded their school.


Rev. Fr. Joel Usman, Registrar of the Seminary, who announced their release in a brief statement on Friday in Kaduna, however, said one student was not freed by their captors.

The brief statement said in part: “One is still at large. We thank you our brothers and sisters for your prayers in our travails.

“Kindly continue to pray for the remaining one and all those who are still in the hands of kidnappers.”


The Kaduna State Police Command Public Relations Officer, DSP Yakubu Sabo, also confirmed the release of the students, adding that one of the victims was still in captivity.
