A Catholic diocese in Nigeria has announced “with joy” the release of a priest held captive for 40 days.
Diocesan chancellor Father Patrick Adikwu Odeh said: “With hearts filled with joy, we announce the return of our brother, the Rev. Fr. Felix Zakari Fidson, who was abducted shortly after he left his residence at St. Ann’s Zango Tama II on his way to the diocesan headquarters on Thursday, March 24, 2022.”
The abduction of Zakari, pastor of St. Ann’s, Zango/Taman Parish, was immediately followed by an appeal for prayers for his release.
