A member of a Nigerian highway gang that’s responsible for murdering a kidnapped Catholic seminarian said they killed the aspiring priest because he wouldn’t stop proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ to his captors.

Michael Nnadi and three other seminarians were kidnapped from the Good Shepherd Seminary in Kaduna, Nigeria, in January and held for ransom.

But Nnadi, who was studying to become a priest, preached to the gang members from the first day he was kidnapped.

Mustapha Mohammed, who is alleged to be the leader and mastermind behind the abduction, in an interview with Sun News Online, said Nnadi “kept preaching and told him to his face to change his evil ways or perish.”

According to the newspaper, Mohammed is a 26-year-old Fulani man who admitted to being part of a 45-man kidnapping gang that has attacked and abducted commuters traveling along the Abuja-Kaduna expressway, the Kaduna-Jos road, and other roadways in the area.

Nnadi “did not allow” Mohammed “to have peace as he continued preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ to him even when he knew they were not of the same faith,” Mohammed told Sun News Online. Mohammed “did not like the confidence displayed by the young man” and killed him.

The gang members initially demanded a N100 million ransom ($250,000 USD), although that later was reduced to N10 million ($25,000 USD). They targeted the seminary because they believed it would have lots of money.

Nnadi was the only one killed.

Nnadi was kidnapped on Jan. 8 alongside three other seminarians who were not killed. Mustapha said that from the first day they were kidnapped, Nnadi continued preaching about Jesus and would not allow his captors to have peace even though they did not share the same faith.

Mustapha told the newspaper that he didn’t appreciate Nnadi’s confidence and bravery and “decided to send him to an early grave.”

“He said the deceased kept preaching and told him to his face to change his evil ways or perish from the day he was abducted alongside his colleagues,” the report reads.

According to the suspect, his gang targeted the seminary because they thought they could make money by kidnapping people there. He said the gang got information on the seminary from one of its members who resides near Good Shepherd Seminary.

The report states that the gang member conducted five days of surveillance on the seminary before the gang followed through with the kidnapping operation.

According to the National Catholic Register, the kidnappers were dressed in military camouflage when they broke past a fence surrounding the seminary’s living quarters and began to open fire.
