Apostle Bako and his wife have regained their freedom
A Nigerian apostle and his wife have been released.
The kidnapped chairman of the Kaduna State chapter of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, Apostle Emmanuel Egoh Bako, and his wife, Cindy were released on Sunday.
Gunmen suspected to be Boko Haram terrorists had about 8:00pm on Christmas Day, invaded the Albarka Prayer Camp at Fadan Kagoma near Kafanchan in Jema’a Local Government Area of the state, shot indiscriminately before taking away the cleric, wife and one other person simply identified as Mr. Douglas to an unknown destination.
A government statement by the commissioner of Internal Security and Home Affairs, Mr. Samuel Aruwan, said Bako and the wife were freed from the kidnappers’ den on Sunday.
The statement was titled, ‘Apostle Bako, wife regain freedom.’
The commissioner said the Secretary of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria in Kaduna State, Rev. Tony Inwulale, also confirmed the development to the government.
