"With a very heavy heart, I wish to inform you that our dear son, Michael was murdered by the bandits on a date we cannot confirm. He and the wife of a doctor were arbitrarily separated from the group and killed. The Rector identified the corpse this afternoon," Bishop Matthew Hassan Kukah of Sokoto, Nigeria, said in a statement released Feb. 1.
Michael Nnadi was 18 years old.
