Members of the Islamic extremist group Boko Haram kidnapped a pastor in an attack in Nigeria on January 3.
Kidnapped pastor Lawan Andimi is a senior member of the Christian Association of Nigeria. He was kidnapped from Michika, a town on the Cameroon border.
In a Boko Haram video published after the raid, he asks the government to work for his release and urges his friends and family not to worry about him, "but thank God for everything."
The raid on Michika is just one of several recent acts of terror by Boko Haram.
