A Nigerian pastor who was abducted by the Boko Haram Islamic terrorist group seven months ago was finally freed on Sunday and said his captors demanded that he convert to Islam. 

Pastor Moses Oyeleke of Living Faith Church (also known as Winners Chapel) was released along with a young female named Ndagilaya Ibrahim Umar of the government science secondary school in Nigeria’s northeast Borno state. 

According to Sahara Reporters, the captives’ release was facilitated by the Department of State Service and the Initiative for Peacebuilding Movement and the Kalthum Foundation for Peace. 

Oyeleke was abducted on April 10 along with National Youth Service Corps member Abraham Amuta while on their way from Maiduguri to Chibok.
