How we rescued Bishop Chikwe – Police

The Imo State Command of the Nigeria Police has reported the rescue of the kidnapped Auxiliary Archbishop of Owerri Catholic Diocese, Most Rev. Moses Chikwe who was snatched last Sunday at around 6 30 pm in Owerri in the wake of administering a mass at World bank street.

State Police Public Relation Officer, Orlando Ikeokwu who announced his release in a Police platform social media handle said the priest was rescued unhurt on Friday alongside his driver and without any ransom paid.

According to Ikeokwu, “it took a sting operation” by the men of the Imo State police command to track down the kidnappers, although the location where he was rescued was not disclosed but a church leader who spoke to our correspondent under anonymity said “it does not matter where he was rescued, rather the good news is that he has been rescued.”
