The Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in Michika Local Government Area of Adamawa State, Lawan Andimi, who was kidnapped on Saturday has called on CAN, the governor of Adamawa State, Fintiri and other authorities to come to his rescue.
Lawan Andimi, CAN Chairman was declared missing on Saturday, January 3rd. Andimi’s disappearance followed a foiled attack on Michika LGA by Boko Haram insurgents on Thursday.

In the video, Andimi, while pleading with the authorities commended his captors for treating him well.
He urged his family members to pray for his release, adding that if he is not released, maybe it is the will of God.
Andimi said, “I have never been discouraged because all condition that one finds himself is in the hand of God.
“God Who made them to take care of me and to leave my life will still work and he will touch them.
“I’m appealing to my colleagues, particularly my President, and my Governor for my release.
“These people have been doing me well, they provide my every need, they haven’t done anything wrong to me so I believe that God who made them to act in such a way to me will make all arrangements for me to leave here.
“By the grace of God I will be together with my wife and children, If the opportunity is not granted maybe it is the will of God.
“I urge you all to be patient, do not cry, do not worry, but thank God for everything.”
