Archbishop Kattey released

16 September 2013


THE Archbishop of Niger Delta Province in Nigeria, the Most Revd Ignatius Kattey, has been freed, more than a week after he was kidnapped by armed men.

He was released in a stable condition and without a ransom on Saturday evening, police said.

Last week, Archdeacon John Chukwuemeka Adubasim of the diocese of Niger Delta North, described how the kidnapping had been a shock in an area where the threat to clerics is perceived to be minimal (News, 13 September).
