Four Catholic priests abducted by gunmen while on their way to Ekpoma Edo State, on Tuesday have regained their freedom, TribuneOnline has gathered.There names were given as Rev. Fr. VICTOR ADIGBOLUJA (Ijebu Ode Diocese), Rev. Fr. ANTHONY OTEGBOLA (Abeokuta Diocese), Rev. Fr. JOSEPH EDIAE (Benin Archdiocese) and Rev. Fr. OBADJERE EMMANUEL (Warri Diocese).

It was gathered that the priests were, after a successful meeting in Warri on Tuesday evening, en route to Ekpoma, when they were abducted by fierce-looking armed men ambushed them.

TribuneOnline further gathered that a few of the entourage managed to escape the scene with their damaged cars, while the four priests fell victim.

A source said the priests were returning from an annual class meeting that was held in Warri between Monday 5th and Tuesday 6th, November 2018, to mark their 10th Year Priestly Anniversary.

They were headed for the SEMINARY OF ALL SAINTS, UHIELE- EKPOMA, their alma mater, to celebrate with the Seminary community as part of the alumni event for this year when they were abducted.

It will be recalled that the four priests were allegedly kidnapped at Oronigbe in Edo State while on their way to Ekpoma.

The Delta State Commissioner of Police, CP Muhammad Mustafa, who confirmed the incident on Wednesday, said the police was working hard to rescue the kidnapped priests.

Mustafa further disclosed that the kidnappers had opened communication with families of the victims to demand ransom, but quipped: “you know we don’t encourage paying a ransom, but definitely, we will ensure their release.”
