This was disclosed on Thursday by General Overseer of the church, Pastor Enoch Adeboye.

Adeboye disclosed this through a tweet on Thursday, saying all the eight members have been freed and have been taken to hospital for examination.

Ripples Nigeria had reported that eight members of RCCG’s Region 30 Trinity Sanctuary, Kaduna, were attacked and abducted by gunmen on March 26, near Doka along the Kachia-Kafanchan Road, on their way to a church programme in Kafanchan.
