A senior church leader in Nigeria, who was abducted in early January, has reportedly now been killed.
Reverend Lawan Andimi, a state chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), was taken during a raid in Michika, a town in Nigeria’s Adamawa State.
A video was later released by a group linked to extremist Boko Haram showing him in captivity.
In it, he said: “I have never been discouraged because all conditions that one finds himself is in the hand of God.
“I still believe that God who made them to act in such a way is still alive and will make all arrangements.
“By the grace of God, I’ll be together with my wife, my children and all my colleagues. Don’t cry. Don’t worry, but thank God for everything. Thank you.”
Investigative journalist, Ahmed Salkida, now says he’s seen a video of his beheading.
