Spokesman of the Command, DSP Moses Nkombe, who confirmed the release of the Priest to journalists in Benin, said he was released unhurt and without payment of ransom, adding that the police was on the trail of the kidnappers.

Fr. Adorolo was abducted along Auchi-Okene highway at about 6 pm last Wednesday, while returning from Igarra in Akoko-Edo Local Government area of the State, where he attended the ‘Month Mind’ of the oldest Priest of the Auchi Diocese, late Fr. Lawrence Balogun, at St. John Apostolic Church, Igarra.

‎The cleric, who was driving in his Mercedes 350ML SUV, was dressed in his white Cassock and accompanied by a boy living with him when he was abducted.

Sources said Fr. Adorolo was seen at about 10 pm in a community 5 kilometers away from Auchi, the headquarters of Estako West local government area.

He was said to have told the people that he trekked for long hours from where his abductors dumped him.
