Boko Haram insurgents in Borno has released a pastor of the Living Faith Church, who was held in captivity for seven months.

Recall that Samson Ayokunle, the President, Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), had in July called on President Muhammadu Buhari to ensure the release of Miss Leah Sharibu, Moses Oyeleke and Grace Taku and other hostages being held by Boko Haram.

It was gathered that Pastor Moses Oyeleke was released after the efforts of Governor Babagana Zulum and two Non-Governmental Organisations.

Oyeleke and his assistant, Abraham Amuta, a National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) member, were seized along Chibok road, on March 13, 2019.

They were on a church committee established to distribute relief materials to Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs).

Ndagilaya Umar, a female teacher at Government Science Secondary School, Askira, was also released by the insurgents.

Naija News understands that the army and the Department of State Services were also involved in providing logistics and intelligence for their release.
