The CAN scribe was declared missing following a raid by the Abubakar Shekau led terror group, Boko Haram in Michika, Adamawa state 3rd January, 2020 has been confirmed a captive of the terror group. In a video message exclusively obtained by salkida.com, the Mr. Andimi pleaded with his colleagues in CAN and the Adamawa state governor, Ahmadu Umoru Fintri as well as other authorities to intervene and push for his soonest release.

Mr. Andimi, in a little over six minutes of recorded video spoke in Hausa and English. He wore an overall sport tracksuit, grey of color, with a bold orange line running across the chest. He commended his captors for treating him humanly, providing him with blanket cover, decent beddings and good food. He requested his colleagues in CAN as well as his family members not to be distraught nor to sorrow since God’s will must be respected in all of their lives. He declared that if its pleased God that he be released, he would be out but if God decides not to get him out that his wife should be patient and they should look after his children.

On the evening of Thursday, 3rd January, 2020 while people were still celebrating the new year, there was a sudden appearance of a convoy of trucks with armed men, some of them disguised in Military fatigue invading the town. With the first volleys of gunshots, the town broke into a bedlam of sorts with people running for their lives. The invading forces combed the town for several hours, pillaging for foodstuff and valuables. The Military reportedly reinforced, engaged the marauders in fierce gun battle, forcing them to flee.

  1. Lord, we thank You because You always answer us when call upon You (Jer. 33:3), and You are in control over this and other threatning situations in this Country.
    We need Your intervention now Lord; we demand for the release of Your Servant and all other captives, as You did it for Apostle Peter. Acts 12:1-11. Heb.13:8.
    It’s only You that can do this for us!
    We thank You for answering our prayers in Jesus’ Name. Amem!

    • What is the meaning of this denial. CAN Chairman or not Rev. Is a Christian who has been abducted and is still with his abductors since then. Let’s pray and speak in one voice for the release of the Christian brother. May God touch the heart of his abductors to release him to join his family and church in Jesus Holy Name. Amen.

  2. In the spirit of the new year, all hostilities by Boko Haram members against the society should cease. Consequently,the CAN Rev. Lawan Andimi , held hostage , should be released unconditionally, forthwith .
