Suspected Al-Shabab terrorists assassinated Revd Abdiwali Ahmed today around 12:30PM in a market place in Garissa town of North-Eastern Kenya. Rev. Abdiweli and Pastor Ibrahim Makunyi, a Kenyan brother were in a car when two gunmen approached them and shot them in a short rang, killing Revd Abdiweli instantly and severely injuring Pastor Makunyi, who is currently hospitalized in Nairobi. Revd. Abdiweli was well-known evangelist in Somali inhabited North-Eastern province of Kenya and among the Somali church worldwide.
Revd Abdiweli left his Nigerian-born widow, Helen and their three children. Please pray for the recovery of Pastor Makunyi and for the safety and welbeing of Revd Abdiweli's family. Pray also for the security and protection of the Somali church and the prosecuted world-wide Christian church.
