The chairman of the Kaduna State chapter of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, Apostle Emmanuel Egoh Bako and his wife, Cindy, have been released by their abductors.
Recall that kidnappers on the 25th of December stormed Albarka Prayer Camp at Fadan Kagoma near Kafanchan in Jema’a Local Government Area of the state, shot indiscriminately before taking away the cleric, wife and one other person simply identified as Mr. Douglas to an unknown destination.
The state government in a statement released through the commissioner of Internal Security and Home Affairs, Mr. Samuel Aruwan, noted that Apostle Bako and the wife were released from the kidnappers’ den on Sunday.
The statement was titled, ‘Apostle Bako, wife regain freedom.’
Aruwan noted that the development was also confirmed by the Secretary of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) in Kaduna State, Rev. Tony Inwulale.
The commissioner further stated that the state Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, has expressed relief and happiness over the development and offered his best wishes to the cleric and his wife.
“The Kaduna State Government has been informed by the security agencies of the release of Apostle Emmanuel Ego Bako and his wife, Mrs Cindy Bako on Sunday afternoon by their abductors,” the commissioner added.
