Over 5000 Candles Burned Worldwide For Assassinated Nigerian Seminarian

A seminarian, Michael Nnamdi, who was killed by kidnappers in Kaduna, got not less than 5,741 candles in from Southern Africa to Afghanistan and from the United States of America to Colombia to signify mourning.

Speaking at the funeral mass for Michael, Bishop Monsignor Matthew Hassan Kukah, said at the Good Shepherd Seminary in Kaduna on Tuesday the dates of the funeral were confirmed and people from around the world were burning candles in solidarity with the dead seminarian, this act made his ask “what message does God have for this country?”

He said Germany solely reported 3,305 burning candles.
According to the Catholic Bishop, “the national and international reactions to the death of this young man have made me step back and ask what message God has for our country. Michael is the first Seminarian to carry the mark of this brutality and wickedness. “Priests have died in the hands of these wicked human beings. Michael was only a Seminarian in his first year of training. I had seen him in his cassock which he wore in my presence, not with pride but with dignity. “Why would the tragic death of a young man such as him elicit such an unprecedented level of emotions here and around the world? “Maria Lozano, a staff of the Aid to the Church In Need, an organisation dedicated to the cause of the persecution of Christians around the world, called me frantically immediately after the news of the kidnapping of the Seminarians went out. “The next day, she sent me an emotional voice message to say that she heard that Michael was an orphan and that since the kidnappers will be looking for money might his life be in danger if they realise that he is an orphan? Could she mobilise especially mothers to become parents for him, to keep him and others in their hearts and to continue to pray for him? Maria remained with us emotionally and requested information about the burial. “When the Archbishop approved the date of the burial, I passed the information to her immediately. By the next day, February 5th, she sent me a message to say that when she asked people around the world to light a candle for Michael on the date of his burial, 2,436 persons from Afghanistan, Pakistan, United States of America, Mexico, Venezuela, Colombia, Madagascar, South Africa, Congo, Mali, Spain, Turkey, Saudi Arabia responded. “Germany alone had a total of 3,305 persons in a matter of hours. In light of this, I wondered, who are we to mourn? Who are we to refuse this crown of honour and glory? We ceased to mourn for the seminarian thereon.”
