Rage Arises As Boko Haram Kills CAN Chairman In Adamawa


Ferocious jihadist terrorist organisation, known as Boko Haram has beheaded an abducted CAN Chairman in Michika LGA, of Adamawa State, Rev. Lawan Andimi.

A Nigerian journalist, Ahmad Salkida, who is in self exile, in the United Arab Emirates after an alleged death threat, broke the news on one of the social media platforms, precisely twitter, revealing that Andimi was killed by his abductors on Monday.

Mr. Salkida, who has been giving information about the activities of the rebels since 2006, tweeted about Andimi’s execution by his abductors.

The terrorists had demanded a ransom of 2 million Euros and were offered N50 million, which they rejected before beheading the cleric.

Adamawa State Chairman of CAN, Reverend Father Dami Mamza told reporters in Yola, yesterday while confirming the killing of Andimi.

According to Reverend Mamza, negotiations were still on going with the rebels as at last week when they stopped calling after the offer was made to them.

He noted that the insurgents also called the wife of the late cleric that they would kill the husband on Saturday, but they delayed until Monday.

The Adamawa CAN Chairman maintained that the video and picture of the killing were released through one Ahmad Salkida, a Boko Haram negotiator based in Dubai.

Recall that Andimi had cried for help from captivity, asking Governor Ahmadu Fintiri of Adamawa State, among others to rescue him.

In a video obtained by Salkida, Andimi said the rebels had not maltreated him since he was abducted.

Reacting to the killing, national leadership of CAN said his death and other captives in the hands of the rebels was a shame on the Federal Government.

The Church views the relentless kidnappings, extortions and killings of Christians and innocent Nigerians as shameful to the government that each time boasts that it has conquered the rebels.

It is saddening that each time the government comes out to claim the defeat of the insurgency, more killings of people are committed.
