Breaking Reports from Nigeria’s North East say the Boko Haram terrorist group has released Stella Ibrahim, who was kidnapped alongside three others engaging in religious activities in 2019.
She was held for almost ten months.
Miss Ibrahim is a sister to Ndagila Ibrahim who was released together with Pastor Moses Oyeleke in October 2019.

Her release was facilitated by government security forces and a local NGO known as Kalthum Foundation for Peace reports say.

Sources say Abraham Amuta, a member of Living Faith Church and a corps member is still in captivity but in good health.

Recalled that Boko Haram had kidnapped a member of the National Youth Service Corps, Abraham Amuta and three other members of the church on their way to Chibok to distribute relief items to internally displaced persons and evangelise.

Miss Ibrahim was one of the persons kidnapped.

Amuta’s housemate, Success Ezeanya, had tweeted about the abduction last year which led to the knowledge of the abduction.

The insurgents then demanded N200m before they could release those they had kidnapped.

Renata had stated, “I haven’t heard anything from AB’s family members. I think they are communicating directly with the church, so I have not heard anything directly from them. I know he is the only son; I don’t know if he is the only child. According to one of the church members, Boko Haram asked for a ransom of N200m.”

Daily Mail reports that Amuta served as a vigilante. Amuta’s colleague,  Ezeanya had tweeted, “Abraham Amuta is a corps member serving in Maiduguri. He was abducted by Boko Haram two weeks ago. He went for evangelism with a pastor from his church – Living Faith. He is an only son. Let’s not forget him in our prayers.

“He is a Batch B, stream 1 corps member serving in Maiduguri, Borno State. It’s been over two weeks now since he went missing in Maiduguri. Some people claiming to be Boko Haram have called and claimed to have abducted him. Please retweet until the Federal Government sees this.”
