President Muhammadu Buhari has condemned the killing of Lawan Andimi, the Michika Local Government Area Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria, by Boko Haram.
Buhari described Andimi’s gruesome murder as inhuman, cruel and deliberately provocative, saying that the terrorist initially expressed willingness to release him.
Garba Shehu, the Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to President Buhari, in a reaction to the killing of the CAN chairman, said; “the terrorists killed the religious leader while giving signals of a willingness to set him free by releasing him to third parties.”
Naija Buzz News few weeks ago reported how the Boko Haram terrorist group invaded Michika LGA of Adamawa State, killing many and abducting the CAN Chairman in the attack.
Mr. Shehu who consoled with the family of the deceased, Christians all over the nation, the people of Adamawa State, said that the terrorists would continue to pay heavy price for their actions.
The president’s spokesman further urged aid group to stop support provided to the terror group, saying that their only agenda is evil.
