06/11/2018 Burkina Faso (World Watch Monitor) – The pastor abducted on Sunday with his family in Burkina Faso’s north-eastern province of Soum has been released.
Local sources told Omega Radio that Pastor Pierre Boena, his son David and his daughter-in-law, Ami Sawadogo, were released yesterday (7 June).
The report did not specifically mention the two granddaughters, Fasne-wendé Ouédraogo and Pélagie Sawadogo, who were also abducted during the raid on Sunday, but World Watch Monitor understands that they were also released.
Omega Radio said the pastor was released “with all the other members of his family in Malian territory”.
The reason for their release is not known, nor is it known whether a ransom was paid.
