A Christian pastor who insisted that “God’s will must be respected” after being kidnapped by Islamic terrorists has been killed by his captors.
Pastor Lawan Andimi, a senior member of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), was beheaded by Boko Haram fighters yesterday, according to veteran journalist and Islamic terror expert, Ahmad Salkida.
“To break some news items can traumatize. I’m battling with one of such,” Salkida tweeted. “Reverend Andimi, abducted by #BokoHaram was executed yesterday. Rev. Andimi was a church leader, a father to his children and the community he served. My condolences go to his family.”
Following his seizure in Adamawa state on January 2, Pastor Andimi released a video urging his family not to “sorrow for him, since God’s will must be respected.”
