Boko Haram contacted the family and demanded 200 million Euros. CAN and his local church negotiated for 50 million and the terrorists agreed.
Suddenly they contacted CAN again that they would kill him whether they got the money or not unless he agreed and be converted to a Muslim. Shortly they sent a picture of how he was beheaded.
To give further perspective on this, another member of his church was kidnapped earlier and forced to convert. He was never released but made to become one of the Boko Haram soldiers.
The person that killed the Rev is also a Christian who was abducted by BH and was converted by them. He was called Emmanuel.
THE NEW TACTICS
Boko Haram is an Islamically instituted and funded terrorist group that has the ultimate mandate of forcing Islam on every Nigerian or annihilating those that refuse to convert to Islam.
Boko Haram are not ghosts, they are well-known people by the government and the Muslims in Nigeria. They get the confidence to abduct and kill anyone because of the continuous support they enjoy from the Nigerian government and the Muslims.
Christians are now paying dearly with their lives. Almost all the Christian communities, especially in Northern Nigeria, are always mourning the death of their brothers and sisters or struggling to secure their freedom from the den of these evil people.
Both Boko Haram and Fulani Jihadists are Islamic militants working for the cause of Islam and enjoying the support of the Nigerian government and the Muslim Communities.
At this point, it is important for the world to know this truth; FOR US TO LIVE IS CHRIST, AND TO DIE IS A GREAT GAIN. WE ARE FOR JESUS AND JESUS ALONE COME RAIN COME SUN!
WE HAVE OVERCOME THEM ALREADY!
We will Remain Strong in the Lord and in the Power of His Might.
