Kidnapped CAN chairman regains freedom

The Chairman, Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Nasarawa State chapter, Joseph Masin, who was abducted by gunmen on Thursday in Lafia has regained his freedom.

Bola Longe, the Commissioner of Police (CP) in the state, confirmed the release of the CAN chairman to journalists on Sunday in Lafia.

Mr Longe said that four suspects have been arrested in connection with the abduction and that investigation was ongoing to arrest all those involved.

He, however, denied knowledge of any ransom being paid to secure the release of the CAN chairman.

The police commissioner added that all the suspects would be charged to court for prosecution as soon as investigation was concluded.

Corroborating the release, Sam Joseph, the son of the CAN Chairman, told journalists that his father regained his freedom at about 11:45 p.m. on Saturday, around Lizhi village in Nasarawa-Eggon Local Government Area of the state.

He said the bishop, however, arrived his Bukan-sidi residence in Lafia at about 2:00 a.m on Sunday and had been taken for medical examination in an undisclosed hospital.
