Catholic priest and Deputy Registrar of Spiritan University Umunneochi, in Abia State, Chinedu Nwadike and a seminarian who were abducted on Friday along the Okigwe- Umunneochi axis of the Enugu- Port Harcourt Expressway, have regained their freedom.

The victims regained their freedom Sunday evening and was made public yesterday evening with the release broken by a relation of the priest, Abuchi Anueyiagu, on his Facebook page who said their release was not without ransom

Their abductors suspected to be herders on rampage around Umunneochi/Okigwe axis, had demanded 50 million Naira ransom shortly after their abduction.

When contacted, Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO in charge of Abia State, Geoffrey Ogbonna, said he was not yet aware of the release and can’t confirm whether the Divisional Crime Officer DCO, in charge of Umunneochi Divisional Police station, abducted earlier on Thursday had been killed or not.
