The Chairman, Nasarawa State Chapter of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) Bishop Joseph Masin, has been released by his abductors. He was kidnapped on May 27 by unidentified gunmen who stormed his residence in the midnight at Bukan Sidi area of Lafia, the Nasarawa State capital, and took him away to an unknown destination.
One of the CAN Chairman’s sons, Pastor Sam Joseph, said: “The Bishop was released around 11 pm on Saturday and arrived home around 2am this Sunday.” It is unknown if a ransom was paid or not.
‘’Despite all he went through and what it cost the Church to secure his freedom, we want to return all Glory to God for bringing him back alive.
The Church in Nigeria is going through a turbulent moment. It’s either a Christian community is attacked and lives killed or Church leaders abducted or killed.
Obviously, our help as Christians comes only from God but not the Government of Nigeria.
Let’s all be closer to God than ever before’’. He said
GOD BLESS HIS CHURCH AS WE CONTINUE TO MARCH ON, AND
