The state CAN chairman, revealed that “Pastor Lawan was beheaded yesterday.
“Negations were still ongoing when they stopped calling. They were offered N50 million but they rejected it.
“They called his wife last week, informing her that they will be beheading him on Saturday, but somehow, they waited till Monday yesterday.
“Also yesterday, pastor Dennis Bagauri of the Lutheran Church, was killed in Jereng, Mayo-Belwa area of Adamawa state.
“It is now clear that Christians are not protected by the government; we don’t feel like we have a government”, he said.

Solomon Kumangar, Director General, Media and Communication to the governor said, “the governor is saddened by the gruesome execution of the pastor”.
