The wife of the murdered Kaduna pastor, Hosea Akuchi, Mrs Talatu Akuchi, who was abducted a week ago, has regained her freedom from her abductors after payment of ransom, a family source has disclosed.

According to the family source, the abductors were paid N500,000 before she was released on Saturday night.

It would be recalled that her abductors had stormed their house at about 1am Monday, killed her husband and went away with her.
