Rev. Fr. Timothy Ngwuta have been released from Prison.
The Catholic Church Diocese of Abakaliki on Saturday commended members of the public for efforts they made to secure his bail.
The Reverend Father was arrested on December 21, 2021 at Mbeke-Ishieke, Ebonyi State over alleged murder.
This followed the killing of five Engineers working on a project site of the Ebonyi State Government.
The killing was linked to the Effium-Ezza Effium fratricide.
He was released from the Nigeria Correctional Service Centre in Abakaliki on Friday.

In a statement issued in Abakaliki on Saturday, Rev. Fr. Mathew Uzoma, Chancellor, Catholic Diocese of Abakaliki, commended the support of the public while the Church sought freedom for Rev. Fr. Ngwuta.
Uzoma said: “We thank all for your prayerful support and to those who allowed themselves to be used either remotely or directly as instruments towards the realisation of the goal. You all made it happen.
“We still rely on your assistance as we go through the court process towards vindicating Rev. Fr. Ngwuta of spurious charges levelled against him.”
