A clergyman with the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) in Calabar, the Cross River State capital Sunday Adeniran who was kidnapped last weekend, has regained freedom reports Vanguard Newspapers.

No fewer than 28 abductions have been recorded by security agencies in the past four weeks, security sources say. To abduct Adeniran, abductors broke through the roof of his house at 8 miles, in the early hours of Saturday, and kidnapped him. A female teacher was also abducted.

And sources say he, alongside another victim, Justin Esedeke, have regained freedom. Adeniran is said to have been released at about 2:00 AM on Monday morning near Scanobo fuelling station, Ikot Ekpo, 8 miles in the outskirts of Calabar.

His abductors had initially demanded a ransom of NGN7 million but decided to collect what was available upon discovering that the Anti Cultism and Kidnapping Squad was on their trail.

Justine, 24, a businessman, was abandoned by his captors in the hills around Nasarrawa, Bacoco in 8 miles and was discovered by the Anti Cultism and Kidnapping Squad while combing the area.

The Police has since confirmed the release of the duo.
