The abducted pastor of EYN Church of the Brethren in Borno State, Bulus Yikura, has regained his freedom from his Boko Haram captives.
The cleric was abducted by Boko Haram insurgents in Pemi village, Chibok local government area, Borno State, on December 24 last year.
Security sources confirmed to journalists that Pastor Yikura was released by his abductors on Wednesday evening.
Yikura had in video released by Boko Haram last week urged the Federal Government, the Borno State Government and the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) to save him from imminent death.
The insurgents had threatened to kill the cleric if the government fails to meet their demands by March 4, which is tomorrow, Thursday.
