Those who allegedly abducted and eventually killed the 18-year-old Nigerian Seminarian, Michael Nnadi are in the hands of police officers in Nigeria, a Church official has confirmed.
A day after the news of the release of two more seminarians who had been abducted January 8 alongside two others, a Nigerian Bishop has, “with a very heavy heart”, announced that the missing seminarian, a native of his diocese, had been murdered.
One of the four Nigerian first-year philosophy seminarians abducted January 8 from the Kaduna-based Good Shepherd Major Seminary was freed Saturday, January 18, having been dumped by the kidnappers along Nigeria’s Kaduna-Abuja highway. He was rescued by some Good Samaritans and he is receiving medication at a Catholic health facility, multiple sources have told ACI Africa.
Days after the abduction of four Nigerian Major Seminarians by men “wearing military uniform”, the Catholic Bishops of the West African nation, the most populous in Africa, are counting on the security agencies in their country to make real their assurance of securing the release of the seminarians and called for prayers for the seminarians’ “speedy release”.
