Boko Haram releases pastor hours before deadline
Nigerian clergyman, Bulus Yakuru, who was abducted by the Abubakar Shekau led faction of Boko Haram on December 24, 2020, has been released.
Yakuru was abducted by the terror group in Pemi village, Borno state which is about 20 kilometres from Chibok where Boko Haram insurgents abducted hundreds of schoolgirls in 2014.
The terrorists abducted him after killing seven persons during the attack.
In a video posted on social media last week, the clergyman was seen appealing to the Federal government to intervene and secure his release as the sect members threatened that was the last time he would be given an opportunity to plead for intervention.
According to PREMIUM TIMES, Bulus was sighted being moved to the office of Nigeria’s domestic intelligence service known as the State Security Service in Borno after his release by the sect members on Wednesday evening, March 3.
