RCCG Pastor Escapes From Boko Haram After 10 Months In Captivity

This is good news!! A pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) who served in the rural area of Borno/Yobe province has escaped from the captivity of Boko Haram. 

Pastor Rotimi Obajimi, was on his way to Maiduguri on January 6th this year when Boko Haram militants abducted him.

A pastor in Redeem church in Maiduguri told SaharaReporters that they were surprised to see Mr. Obajimi emerge from nowhere. He said:

“We were so amazed to see him because we have been praying earnestly for long time trusting Jesus that he would surely come back but lo and behold he was brought to our headquarters in Maiduguri by the  military.”

The pastor told his colleagues that was taken to Sambisa Forest where he was tied down for months, he was later  moved to an unknown destination and thereafter  brought back to Sambisa forest again. He reportedly told his colleagues that his escape was made possible by a heavy downpour that led to massive floods which sacked everyone in the camps.

Due to the rains, armed men left him and others so he was able to escape and for days he  wandered in the forest before he could arrive to a village where the military picked him up after narrating his experiences to them, they later brought him to Maiduguri.

He  was later driven to Maimallari Hospital by military escorts,who had his face covered.

Another pastor revealed that the senior military official at 7 Division has advised them to relocate  the pastor to Redemption Camp in Lagos for his safety, in fact, adequate provision has been made to fly  him out of Maiduguri according to the pastor.

A military source at 7 Division confirmed the escape of Pastor Obajimi claiming that he has been fully debriefed by the military.
