Kaduna, 08 April, 2021 / 9:50 pm (ACI Africa).
Plans are underway to construct a wall around the Good Shepherd Seminary of Nigeria’s Sokoto Diocese where four Seminarians were abducted in January 2020 including Michael Nnadi who was later found murdered.
The leadership of the Catholic Pontifical Organization, Aid to the Church in Need (ACN) International, has pledged €43,000.00 required to build the wall, which is intended to instill a sense of safety among the Seminarians at the institution who are said to be living in fear following the abduction incident.
Aged 18, Seminarian Nnadi was the youngest of the four first year philosophy Seminarians that were abducted from the Good Shepherd Major Seminary hosted by Nigeria’s Catholic Archdiocese of Kaduna, Northwest of the country, by gunmen who were camouflaged in military uniform on the night of 8 January 2020.
Three of the Seminarians were later set free, a few weeks later, but Michael was not. His lifeless body was discovered abandoned. The news of Michael’s death was announced on 1 February 2020 by the Bishop of his native Diocese of Sokoto.
The “revolver men,” as the Good Shepherd Seminary Rector, Fr. Habila Daboh, described the armed gang, attacked in the night, breaking down the door of the dormitory.
