Boko Haram sect has released Pastor Moses Oyeleke, a cleric with Living Faith Church (Winners Chapel), Maiduguri, Borno State, after six months in their captivity.
They kidnapped the pastor and a National Youth Service Corps member, Abraham Amuta, in May, 2019; while on their way to Chibok to distribute relief items to Internally Displaced Persons and evangelize.
Reports gathered that the cleric was freed earlier today; while Abraham left in their captivity; allegedly because the kidnappers said he is “stubborn” to them. However, he is expected to also regain his freedom in December.
After his release, Pastor Oyeleke headed to church for thanksgiving. He is reportedly at home and safe.
