The Primate of All-Nigeria has written to the bishops of his church to report the Bishop of Gwagwalada has been freed. On 3 Sept 2015 the Rt. Rev. Moses Bukpe-Tabwaye was kidnapped near the border between Edo and Delta States in Southern Nigeria. Last week Archbishop Nicholas Okoh reported that bishop’s captors are demanding 40 million Naira (approximately $200,000) for his release. However, Archbishop Okoh reported the bishop was back home and that no ransom had been paid for his release on 8 Sept. The Nigerian broadcaster Channels TV, citing a Delta State police spokesman, today said the kidnappers had been arrested and confirmed the bishop had been released unharmed and that no ransom had been paid.
