Archbishop Kattey is released

Good news. After nine days in captivity, the Archbishop of the Ecclesiastical Province of the Niger Delta in the Church of Nigeria, the Most Reverend Ignatius Kattey, was released by his captors last Saturday evening. Sources said Archbishop Kattey walked home alone after he regained his freedom from the unknown gunmen who abducted him on Friday 6 September.

We give thanks for his freedom and return to his wife, family and Church community.   


  1. Praise God! We've been praying for his return.

  2. Praise God but that is not the picture of the Archbishop. Thank you all for prayers
