Rev. Polycarp Zango, a pastor with the Church of Christ in Nations (COCIN) in Jos, Plateau State, has been released from the captivity of Boko Haram, Vanguard reports.
Zango was kidnapped by the insurgents on October 19, while on a journey to a Ministers’ conference in Gombe.
Boko Haram released a video clip, showing the cleric was in their custody.
BlazeNewz gathered that this led to the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) declaring it would continue to pray for the release of Rev Zango and other people in Boko Haram captivity.
The Vice-Chairman, Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, (Northern region), Rev. John Hayab, has now confirmed Zango regained his freedom on Friday night.
“We have good news! Rev. Zango has been released from Boko Haram custody.
“It is celebration galore in the Church right now,” Hayab said.
