The Catholic Priest, Rev Father Micheal Olofinlade, who was abducted by yet to identified gunmen on Saturday, January 14, has regained freedom  


Olofinlade was released by his captors late Tuesday evening, January 17.


Fr Olofinlade, the Parish Priest of St George Catholic Church, Omu Ekiti, in Oye Local Government Area in Ekiti State, was kidnapped while returning to his base in Omu Ekiti, after a pastoral assignment in the state capital Ado. It was gathered the gunmen were said to have intercepted the priest’s car, dragged him out, and whisked him away to the forest.


It is not certain whether a ransom was paid for his release.
