Paris (AFP) – A French engineer abducted by Islamist militants in Nigeria and held for 11 months arrived back in France on Monday after managing to escape his kidnappers.
A plane carrying the “weakened” 63-year-old Francis Collomp, accompanied by France’s Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius, landed early Monday at a military airport outside Paris.
He emerged from the plane looking extremely tired, his face drawn, and was met by relatives and the French prime minister.
Collomp was taken by Islamist militants on December 19, 2012, in the state of Katsina in northern Nigeria.
The circumstances of his escape remain uncertain. Nigerian police said he had escaped in the northern city of Zaria on Saturday while his captors were praying.
“He watched his captors’ prayer time. They always prayed for 15 minutes. And yesterday they did not lock the door to his cell,” , said Femi Adenaike Adeleye, the police commissioner in the regional capital of Kaduna.

“While they were at prayer he sneaked out and began to run.”
But a source with knowledge of the case said he had taken advantage of a Nigerian military operation to sneak out of his unlocked cell.
Collomp stopped a motorcycle taxi and had it take him to the nearest police station, from where he was brought to Kaduna.
Adeleye said Collomp had been held in the city of Kano after his abduction and about two months ago brought to Zaria.
Didier Le Bret, the head of the French foreign ministry’s crisis centre, earlier told AFP Collomp was “weakened” but in good enough health to travel.


  1. Good post however I was wanting to know if you could write a litte more
    on this topic? I’d be very grateful if you could elaborate a little bit more.
    Bless you!


    • This is definitely a topic that I need to revisit because prayer really does change things. I am so behind on a few things at this time but I will get around to writing something more on prayer. Stay tuned.
