Pastor Oyeleke Emmanuel and a teenage girl known as Ndagila Ibrahim who were kidnapped in April this year had finally regained freedom from Boko Haram captivity.

The two were part of four persons that were kidnapped by Boko Haram in April. Dandal Kura Radio International reports that the pastor and a Corp member who is known as Abraham Amuta were kidnapped on their way to distribute relief materials from the Living Faith Church in Chibok.

The two teenage girls were separately kidnapped in circumstances that we are unable to confirm but they are students of GGSS Askira Uba.

This is the second time the Borno state Government, the Nigerian Army, the DSS and a local NGO known as Kalthum Foundation for Peace would be collaborating together to work in synergy to get hostages release from the hands of the insurgents.

A source confirmed that no amount was paid as ransom to get the four people released and the insurgents are now talking through a reliable channel.

The Nigerian Army in Operation Lafiya Dole also played a critical and strategic role in getting these persons freed.
