Nigerian bishop released after five days

Bishop Moses Chikwe and his driver, Ndubuisi Robert, had been released by their abductors “unhurt and without ransom" on the 1st of January, five days after their kidnapping.


As we reported earlier this week, Moses Chikwe, a Nigerian Catholic Bishop, was abducted along with his driver on the 27th of December in the capital of Nigeria’s Imo State, Owerri.

Five days later, on the 1st of January, both men were released safe and sound.

Bishop Chikwe’s abduction is the latest in a series of kidnappings that have targeted clergy in Nigeria, but previous abductions have involved priests and seminarians, not bishops.
