CWN Editor's Note: A Catholic priest who was kidnapped on November 24, along with five members of a religious society, has been released.

Father Peter Abang Ochang and his companions were unharmed, a spokesman for the Ogoja diocese reported. He said that the kidnappers were probably not targeting a Catholic priest—although the seizure of priests has become common in Nigeria.
