The attackers also opened fire on the reverend while his wife slipped into coma.
The incident had sparked outrage while Governor Ahmadu Fintiri of Adamawa charged security agencies to go after the attackers.
At the burial of her sons – Xelry Daniel, 19, and Fanye Daniel, 23, on Saturday, the deceased mother had said their blood would bring back their sister.
The children were laid to rest at the church’s cemetery in Kwarhi, near Mubi.
On Sunday, a family source told Daily Trust that the teenager was set free by her abductors after collecting a huge ransom.
“We paid money, a huge amount, of course, before they released her to us on Saturday evening, just after her two brothers were laid to rest at the EYN Church headquarters in Karachi.”
“As of now, the father is receiving treatment at the Modibbo Adama University of Teaching Hospital, Yola, due to gunshot injury and trauma,” the family member said.
