Boko Haram terrorists have reportedly executed the Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria in Adamawa State, Rev. Lawan Andimi, who was abducted earlier this month.
News of his execution was broken by Nigerian exiled journalist, Ahmad Salkida, on his Twitter handle today.
Andimi was declared missing on January 3, following a raid in the town of Michika by a faction of the Islamic terrorist group.
The extremist group released a video on January 9 showing Andimi pleading for his release.
Before the video’s release, the pastor was last seen being taken away in a Toyota truck.
In the video, Andimi pleads for his pastor colleagues to call on Governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri to secure his release.

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.
