Michael Chukwuebuka, Reporting

BARELY three days after, abducted four Catholic reverend sisters, who were abducted along the Okigwe-Enugu Road of Imo State, have been freed.

Stonix News had reported that the Reverend Sisters of the Catholic Church were kidnapped along the Okigwe-Umulolo stretch of the Okigwe-Enugu Expressway in Imo State on Sunday.

The development was disclosed in a statement by The Sisters Of Jesus The Saviour (Generalate), Tuesday, signed by its Secretary-General, Sr Zita Ihedoro.

Stonix News had equally reported that Johannes Nwodo, Christabel Echemazu, Liberata Mbamalu and Benita Agu were kidnapped on their way to Morning Mass on Sunday.

“With hearts full of joy, the sisters of Jesus the Saviour wish to announce the unconditional and safe release of four of our sisters who were abducted around Okigwe-Umulolo area on August 21, 2022.

“Today is a memorable day for us, therefore, we wish to share this joy with all men and women of goodwill who, in one way or the other, have contributed to the quick and safe release of our dear sisters.

“We sincerely appreciate and thank you for your prayers and moral supports during this difficult moment.

“May Jesus the Saviour, whom we have come to serve bless, protect and provide for you, especially in times of difficulty,” the statement issued by Sister Ihedoro read.

She, however, did not disclose if ransom was paid to secure their release.

The four Reverend Siaters were abducted along the Okigwe-Enugu Road which has become a den of kidnappers and armed robbers.

The immediate past Prelate of the Methodist Church of Nigeria, Dr. Samuel Kanu-Uche, Catholic priests, and sundry travelers had been kidnapped along Okigwe-Enugu Road in recent times in which a ransom of N100 million was paid to secure Dr. Kanu-Uche’s freedom.
