Bishop Joseph Masin, Chairman of the Nasarawa State chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), who was abducted last week, has regained his freedom.
Bola Longe, the Nasarawa State Commissioner of Police, disclosed this on Sunday.
The kidnappers had demanded a N20 million ransom for Masin, who they abducted at his residence in residence in Bukan-Sidi in Lafia, the state capital, to be released.
But according to Longe, the clergyman was freed by his abductors on Saturday night after a sustained manhunt by security operatives.
He stated that four persons were arrested in connection with the abduction following credible intelligence.
The bishop was later reunited with his family in Lafia, the state capital at about 1:48 am on Sunday, the commissioner said.
A member of Masin’s family also revealed that the clergyman has been taken to a hospital for medical examination.
