Four Catholic sisters who were kidnapped on Sunday have been released.

The Reverend Sisters belong to the Sisters of Jesus The Savior Generelate in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.

They are Liberata Mbamalu, Benita Agu, Christabel Echemazu and Johannes Nwodo.

They were on their way to a local pastor’s Thanksgiving ceremony when they were mugged and kidnapped.

Two days after their kidnapping, the secretary general of the religious organization, Zita Ihedoro, declared their release in a statement.

According to Ihedoro, the kidnapped sisters were released unconditionally.

“With a heart full of joy, the Sisters of Jesus the Redeemer wish to announce the unconditional release of four of our sisters who were kidnapped on August 21, 2022 around the Okigwe-Umulolo axis,” she said.

“Today is a momentous day for us, so we want to share this joy with all the men and women of goodwill who in one way or another contributed to the speedy and safe release of our dear sisters.”
