Valentine Chinyem



The Auxiliary Archbishop of Owerri Catholic Diocese, Most Rev. Moses Chikwe, has been reacued.

The cleric was abducted last Sunday at about 6:30pm in Owerri, Imo State, after officiating a Mass at World bank road, when he was abducted alongside his driver.

State Police Public Relation Officer, Orlando Ikeokwu who announced his release in a Police platform social media handle said the priest was rescued unhurt on Friday alongside his driver and without any ransom paid.

According to Ikeokwu, “it took a sting operation” by the men of the Imo State police command to track down the kidnappers, although the location where he was rescued was not disclosed but a church leader who spoke to our correspondent under anonymity said “it does not matter where he was rescued, rather the good news is that he has been rescued.”
