PHOTOS: Plateau pastor regains freedom after 7 months in Boko Haram captivity

Rev. Polycarp Zongo, a pastor at COCIN Wild Life Park Jos, Plateau State, has regained freedom seven months after he was kidnapped by Islamic State militants in Gombe State.

WITHIN NIGERIA reports that the clergyman was among several humanitarian workers and civilians released by the terrorists on Monday, June 14 in Maiduguri, Borno State.

Rev. Zongo on Tuesday, June 15, recounted his experience during a prayer session held at the COCIN RCC Garki, Abuja.

It would be recalled that the clergyman alongside two Christian women, were abducted by the Boko Haram terrorists on October 19, 2020.

In a video released by the sect two weeks after the kidnap, the pastor explained how he and the two unnamed women were kidnapped while travelling from Jos to Gombe State for a conference.

“On Monday, 19 October 2020, I was traveling to Gombe for a church conference when we encountered the caliphate’s armed men who captured me along the way; and right now I’m with them,” Pastor Zongo said in Hausa, seeking the help of Governor Simon Lalong, the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) and others.
