Adamawa pastor

SaharaReporters reports that the kidnapped 13-year-old daughter of Pastor Daniel Umaru has been released.

She was freed after a huge ransom was allegedly paid to her kidnappers, it was learnt on Sunday.

The kidnappers had killed the cleric, killed her two sons and kidnapped her only daughter last week. 

Meanwhile, the remains of her two sons who were shot dead on an ill-fated night have been buried by wailing relations and friends of the family.

The remains of the siblings were buried side-by-side at the church cemetery in Kwarhi, near Mubi.

On July 7, 2022, SaharaReporters reported that gunmen shot Pastor Umaru, gunned down his two sons and kidnapped his 13-year-old daughter in Adamawa State.

The sons died while the pastor was taken to hospital where he has been fighting to survive.

The mother of the deceased children was said to have suffered trauma following the tragedy that befell the family. 

SaharaReporters learnt that the gunmen stormed the residence of Umaru of the ‘Eklesiya Yan’uwa A Nigeria‘ (EYN); also known as Church of the Brethren, at Njairi in the Mubi Local Government Area and carried out the dastardly act.

A family source, however, told SaharaReporters Sunday morning that the kidnapped minor was set free by her abductors after collecting a huge ransom.

But the source did not disclose the amount paid as ransom.

“We paid money, a huge amount, of course, before they released her to us on Saturday evening, just after her two brothers were laid to rest at the EYN Church headquarters in Kwarhi.

“As of now, both her parents are fighting for their lives at the Modibbo Adama University Teaching Hospital, Yola, due to gunshot injury and trauma,” the family member said.
