Nigeria: kidnapped Anglican prelate freed

September 20, 2013

Archbishop Ignatius Kattey, Nigeria’s second-ranking Anglican prelate, was released following eight days in captivity.

News reports attributed his kidnapping to financial rather than religious motives.

“His captors dropped him when the police were about to close in on them,” said a police spokesman, according to the Reuters news agency. “No ransom was paid.”
