The Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Sokoto, Most Reverend Matthew Hassan Kukah was training the murdered Seminarian to serve as priest in his Diocese.

He officiated at a Mass today to mark Raphael’s birthday and remembrance of Michael, whose body was interred last week at the Good Shepherd Seminary where he was kidnapped.
