A Catholic priest who was kidnapped in Nigeria on September 28 was released the next day.
Father Emma Dim, the rector of the major seminary in Onitsha, was
released without any ransom payment, according to the chancellor of the
Awka diocese in which he serves.
Bishop Paulinus Ezeokafor of Awka welcomed the priest's safe return
but pleaded for government officials to provide adequate security in the
area, which has been torn by tribal conflicts.
