The names of Catholic seminarians set free by kidnappers have been made public, though one of the affected young seminarians was killed.
It was gathered that they were taken away by gunmen where they spent close to three weeks in captivity.
The lucky ones are:
- Umeanuka Peter
- Kanwai Pius
- Stephen Amos John Paul
The seminarian identified as Michael Nnaji was killed on Saturday, while the three listed above were released.
They are students of philosophy at the Good Shepherd Major Seminary, Kaduna.
It was gathered that ransom was paid before they were released.
A catholic who lamented the sad incidence said no one is secure in Kaduna State and Nigeria at large.
The Registrar in a statement had said: “With joy the Formators, Staff and Seminarians of Good Shepherd Major Seminary, Kaduna, Kaduna State, announce the safe release of 3 of our Seminarians by their captors.”
Before the latest development, Father Usman had added, “one is still at large. We thank you our brothers and sisters for your prayers in our travails.
“Kindly continue to pray for the remaining one and all those who are still in the hands of kidnappers.”
Nigeria Police Police, Kaduna State Command promised that investigation was ongoing to arrest those behind the act.
