Boko Haram members have abducted the chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria CAN in Adamawa state, Lawan Andimi.
According to reports, the terrorists abducted Andimi during an attack on Michika community in Adamawa state on Friday, January 3rd.
In a video message exclusively obtained by journalist, Ahmad Salkida, Andimi could be seen and heard pleading with his colleagues in CAN and the Adamawa state governor, Ahmadu Umoru Fintri, to work hard towards his safe return.
Andimi praised his captors for treating him humanly, providing him with blanket cover, decent beddings and good food while speaking in Hausa and English sporadically. He requested his colleagues in CAN as well as his family members not to be weary since God’s will must be respected in all of their lives. He declared that if it pleases God that he be released, he would be out but if God decides not to get him out, his wife should keep calm and his colleagues should help look after his children.
