“On Monday, October 19, 2020, I was travelling to Gombe for a church conference when we came across the caliphate’s armed men who captured me along the way; and right now, I’m with them,” Pastor Zongo said in Hausa, pleading for assistance from Governor Simon Lalong, the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), and others.
