Boko Haram sect has released Pastor Bulus Yikura who was arrested and given an ultimatum of 7 days which was supposed to expire tomorrow.
It was gathered that the cleric, Bulus Yikura, was freed this evening, as revealed by Premium times.
He was seen on the outskirts of Maiduguri as he was being conveyed to the office of the State Security Service in Borno, at about 6:15 p.m.
Last week, Boko Haram circulated a video where Mr Yikura called on the government of Nigeria and the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) to save him. He said his abductors threatened to take his life at the end of the week.
Going by the seven days ultimatum, Mr Yikura, a pastor with EYN church, had until today to be freed or killed.
In the video, he was seen kneeling in front of a masked man who held a dagger. He said the countdown to his execution started on February 24 and ends on March 4.
“I have been given only seven days to appeal for assistance that will help me out of this torture.
“If truly you want to rescue me from this untold suffering and threat to life, then you have to act fast.
“I am also calling on the EYN president to help mobilise help that will rescue me, and also pray for me so that God will make things easy for me here,” he said in the video.
