Police confirm release of Catholic priest abducted in Enugu

The command’s Public Relations Officer, SP Ebere Amaraizu, confirmed the release of the priest to News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Enugu on Sunday.

Amaraizu said that he had yet to get more details concerning Ndulue’s release by his abductors.

“I have learnt that he has been released and reunited with the church. However, I do not have more details concerning the release now,’’ the police spokesman said.

Attempts by NAN correspondent to get Rev. Fr. Benjamin Achi, Director of Social Communication of Catholic Diocese of Enugu, on phone for details of the priest’s release were not successful.

NAN recalls that Ndulue was abducted on his way home from a pastoral council meeting by unidentified gunmen along Amansiodo Road in Ndiagu-Oghe, Ezeagu Local Government Area on Friday evening.

Ndulue is the Parish Priest of St. Patrick’s Catholic Church, Ihuonyia in Amansiodo community.

The latest incident is barely two weeks after Rev. Fr. Arinze Madu, Deputy Rector, Queen of the Apostle Spiritual Year Seminary, Imezi Owa in Ezeagu Local Government Area, was released by his abductors.

Madu was kidnapped at the seminary’s gate on Oct. 29.
