Four abducted reverend sisters regain freedom


The four reverend sisters of the Medical Missionaries of Mary (MMM), who were kidnapped by unknown gunmen last week, have regained their freedom yesterday.

But the two other sisters that were shot are still battling for their lives at an undisclosed hospital.

The reverend sisters were coming from a burial in the East and were waylaid by masked gunmen who opened fire on their vehicle, shot two and whisked away four on the Benin expressway.

Speaking with The Guardian, the Area Leader of the MMM congregation, Celine Anikwem, said: “I am happy to tell you of the safe release and return of our four MMM sisters this evening around 4:00 p.m. Our God is faithful. Thank you for your prayers and solidarity during this trying period. May God bless us and protect us from harm. Amen”

However, when asked if ransom was paid to secure their release, she refused to disclose what was paid to the abductors.
