The clergyman was abducted inside his church in the Irese area of Ondo State last week Sunday after unknown gunmen invaded the worship centre in a Toyota Corolla car.
The kidnappers had earlier demanded N30 million as ransom from his wife, Yinka, for his release.
The Ondo State Police Command was yet to confirm the release when contacted.
“I am yet to get information on that, so when I get the information I will let you know,” said Tee-Leo Okoro, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO).
The clergyman has since been taken to an undisclosed hospital for a medical examination.
