Kidnapped Katsina Catholic priests freed after two months

Two Catholic priests kidnapped alongside two others in Katsina State have been freed by after two months in their captors’ den.

Religion Nigeria gathered that two priests, Fr. Stephen Ojapa, and Fr. Oliver Okpara, were captured in May in St. Patrick’s Catholic Church in the Kafur LGA of the state.

The parishes are under the Sokoto Catholic Diocese presided over by Bishop Matthew Hassan-Kukah.
