The Chairman of the Adamawa State chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria, Rev. Lawan Andimi, has been executed by Boko Haram.
The news of the execution was broken by seasoned journalist with close contact with Boko Haram, Ahmad Salkida, on Tuesday.
Salkida tweeted on his Twitter page: “To break some news items can traumatize. I’m battling with one of such. 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.”
Rev. Andimi was taken hostage by the Boko Haram terrorists on January 3, 2020 during an attack on a major town in Adamawa State, Michika.
He was thereafter on January 6, 2020 shown in a video by the Islamic terrorist group pleading for his release.
