KIDNAPPED: “We will not accept losing another state Chairman…” [#NigeriaPersecution #ChristianPersecution] 05/31

Christian Association of Nigeria is calling on the country’s government to secure the release of its chairman of the Nasarawa State unit, Bishop Joseph Masin, who was kidnapped from his house by gunmen last week.

The gunmen came on motorcycles and took Bishop Masin from his home in Bukan Sidi area in the state capital of Lafia on Wednesday night, and are now demanding a ransom of 20 million Nigerian Naira (roughly $52,000) according to Pastor Adebayo Oladeji, who leads CAN’s media and communications department.

“Since we have no police of our own and we are trying as much as possible to avoid chaotic situations, we are placing a demand on the federal government and the Nasarawa State Government to ensure the safety and immediate release of Bishop Masin before it is too late.”

In January 2020, Rev. Lawan Andimi, chairman of CAN Michika Local Government Area of Adamawa State, was abducted by the Boko Haram terror group.

Rev. Lawan Andimi was a Church of the Brethren pastor.

Days later, Rev. Lawan Andimi appeared in a ransom video pleading with church and government leaders to secure his release.

However, Rev. Lawan Andimi was said to have been executed because the Christian community could not raise enough funds to meet the ransom demands.

Additionally, Rev. Lawan Andimi refused to renounce his faith in Christ.

““We will not accept losing another state Chairman … while our security agencies appeared powerless, helpless ….”
