Micheal Nnadi, a seminarian at the Good Shepherd Catholic Major Seminary in Kaduna State, who was assassinated by bandits, laid to rest on Tuesday February 11.
Nnadi,18 and three other seminarians were kidnaped from their hostel by unknown gunmen on January 10, 2020, and taken to an unspecified destination. While the three other martyrs were later released from servility, Nnadi was not fortunate as he was murdered and his corpse found along the Kaduna- Abuja highway on February 2nd.
Friends, family, and colleagues of the deceased could not hold back their tears as he was laid to rest at the school’s cemetery.
The funeral mass which had in attendance Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Mathew Kukah, Bishop of Kaduna Diocese, Most Reverend Mathew Ndagoso was held in honour of the seminarian.
Bishop Kukah in his sermon asked Christians to keep their faith alive despite the trying moment.
He called on the government to take on a holistic strategy in revolting insecurity in the country rather than play the blame game.
While describing the security situation as a sign of a near failed state, he called for the sack of the service chiefs, stating that they ”have run out of fresh ideas to tackle the situation.”
The Catholic Bishops Conference at the burial also called on the Federal Government to announce a state of emergency in the nation’s security and protect its citizens from being murdered endlessly.
