Tears as slain Kaduna seminarian is buried


Tears flowed freely as the 18-year-old seminarian, Michael Nnadi, who was abducted and killed by gunmen in Kaduna State, was laid to rest at the premises of the seminary school yesterday.

Nnadi was one of the four students of the Good Shepherds Major Seminary School, Kaukau, abducted by bandits at the school premises.


He was laid to rest at about 1:30 p.m. amid tears and anguish. While conducting the funeral service, the Bishop of Sokoto Catholic Diocese, Bishop Mathew, vented his anger on President Muhammadu Buhari, saying that the president has displayed the greatest form of insensitivity in managing the affairs of the country.

He, however, urged Christians to imitate the sternly quality of the late Michael Nnadi and Leah Sharibu, the Dapchi schoolgirl who had been held hostage by the Boko Haram insurgents since 2018. He said: “We know that Michael’s strength will inspire an army of young people to follow in his steps.

“We will march on with the cross of Christ entrusted to us, not in agony or pain because our salvation lies in your cross. We have no vengeance or bitterness in our hearts. We have no drop of sorrow inside us. We are honoured that our son has been summoned to receive the crown of martyrdom at the infancy of his journey to the priesthood. Leah Sharibu is a martyr of the faith and so is Nnadi.”
