Catholic Priest Kidnapped At Gunpoint In Nigeria Released Unharmed

The kidnappings and killings of priests and pastors has become very common in Nigeria, where a religious war, likely acting as a cover for geopolitical conflict between major Western powers and China as well as creating conditions for the current refugee crisis, will likely expand. The Catholic Church has been very vocal about trying to remedy the situation, and with limited successes.

On March 1, a priest was abducted by Islamic terrorist at gunpoint. However, less than a week later, he has been freed and is doing well as the Christian persecution monitoring website has noted.

Father David Echioda has been freed from his kidnappers in Otukpo, Nigeria on March 1. He was abducted at gunpoint by Boko Haram, a militant terrorist group aimed at making Nigeria a Muslim state. Christianity is a threat. He was not the first nor will he be the last to be kidnapped or murdered. He is the latest in Boko Haram abductions. (source)
