The Chairman of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Nasarawa State chapter, Bishop Joseph Masin, who was kidnapped by gunmen recently has regained freedom.
Bishop Masin’s release was announced by one of his sons, Pastor Sam Joseph.
Pastor Joseph said his father was released just before midnight on Saturday, May 30 but made it home in the early hours of Sunday.
“The Bishop was released around 11 pm on Saturday and arrived home around 2 am this Sunday,” he said.
The release of the Christian leader was a great relief to CAN which had urged the Nigerian security forces to prevent the loss of a second Christian leader in less than six months.
