Johnson Fatokun, the Deeper Life's Anchor University deputy vice-chancellor, who was recently freed from the clutch of kidnappers in Nasarawa state, has broken his silence.
Fatokun who spoke on Thursday, January 21, said that despite the traumatic experience, his faith in God is unshakable, The Nation reports.
The university's DVC added that he will not fail to both pray for the progress of the country and tutor great minds through his profession.
“Despite the experience, my faith remains unshakable. We will continue to work, pray and raise godly men and women who are destined to change the narratives and make Nigeria a better place for the generations ahead.”
Speaking earlier on his release, the assistant registrar, strategy and communications, Okesola Sanusi, noted that Fatokun was freed after serious prayers were offered on his behalf.
Fatokun was on Monday, January 18, kidnapped by some unknown gunmen.
According to sources in the university who spoke with journalists, he was abducted by armed criminals on his way in Nasarawa to drop his children at the Deeper Life High School.
