Tanzania’s High Commissioner to Nigeria, Dr Benson Bana has confirmed the release of the priest who was on August 3, 2023 abducted in Minna Province in Nigeria alongside another Priest Paul Sanogo from Burkina Faso.

The Major Seminarian who was sent to Nigeria for studies by the Africa Missionary Society comes from Kabanga Parish in Kigoma Region.
