Brother of Slain Catholic priest, Vitus Borogo Regains Freedom
After 45 days in captivity, the kidnapped younger brother of the Catholic priest Reverend Father Vitus Borogo—who was killed by bandits—has reclaimed his freedom.
Recall that on Saturday, June 25, a 50-year-old priest was brutally murdered at the Nigerian Prison Farm in Kujama in the state’s Chikun Local Government Area.
During the attack, the bandits also kidnapped Cyril Youguhime Borogo, his brother, and demanded a sizable ransom.
It was learned that money was raised for his release from friends, coworkers, former classmates, and members of their community.
Priscilla Mamnenge Balogun Jerome, the deceased priest’s sister and fund-raiser, confirmed that her brother had been freed.
Philip Aanger, a Tiv group spokesperson who recently visited the mother of the murdered priest, reported that Cyril is currently receiving medical care at an undisclosed hospital.

He said, “MZOUGH U TIV KADUNA is pleased to announce the release of their member, the younger brother of Rev. Borogo who was abducted by unidentified gunmen on the 25th June 2022 after gruesomely beheading his elder brother Rev. Fr. Vitus Viashima Borogo.
“Mr. Cyril Borogo was released yesterday after 45 days in captivity.
Vincent Atu, the president of the St. Augustine Tiv Catholic community in Kaduna, confirmed his release and later informed MZOUGH U TIV Kaduna via media platform.
“The family was paid tribute to by the President of MUT Kaduna, Hon. David Bem Chia, in the early hours of today.
However, as his mother revealed, Mr. Cyril is back but is being treated in an unidentified hospital.
“Hon. Bem chia, accompanied by Cmdr. Atu, prayed for the family and urged the entire Tiv community and all Christians in the nation to shut in with God with fervent prayers until the other MUT Kaduna members and many Nigerians who are captive by the dreaded group are freed and restored to their families.”
