French hostage really does escape thanks to prayer.

Francis Collump, a man taken hostage in Nigeria, recently escaped his captors – truly, and legitimately, because of prayer:

FRANCE 24’s correspondent in Nigeria, Aminu Abubacar, reported that there were no military operation involved and that Collomp managed to escape entirely on his own.

“According to the police commissioner, he escaped yesterday. The commissioner told me that Francis Collomp was held for nine months in Kano. Two months ago he was taken to Zaria, about two hours away, where he was kept in a house (…) Yesterday [his captors] forgot to lock his cell, and while they were praying, he slipped out and ran”, said FRANCE 24’s Abubacar from northern Nigeria.

Because prayer makes people less attentive while praying, and apparently doesn’t augment a person’s competence, Collump was able to escape.  It’s a good thing the hostage-takers were relying on prayer and not the secular practice of staying alert and depending exclusively on their own capabilities to achieve success.
