Boko Haram terrorists have allegedly executed the Chairman of the Adamawa State chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) Rev. Lawan Andimi.
A journalist known to have access to Boko Haram, Ahmed Salkida, confirmed the report. Salkida was once a mediator between the insurgents and the Nigerian government.
He said the Pastor who was declared missing after Boko Haram carried out a foiled attack on Michika Local Government Area in Adamawa, was executed on Monday.
Salkida wrote; “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.
”Reverend Lawan Andimi was beheaded yesterday afternoon, the video of the appalling executions with that of a soldier was obtained at 2:42pm.
“I made sure that the family, the authorities and the church were duly informed before the news was put out to the public this morning”.
