A British missionary medic in West Africa and friends of the 57-year-old British optician, Ian Squire, has revealed what happened leading to the death of the British aid worker in Nigeria.
Recall that the British aid worker was reported to have been killed by kidnappers while three others were rescued from the kidnappers’ coven.
Revealing what happened in the last moment leading to the death of the British aid worker, his fellow hostages, David and Shirley Donovan, told Telegraph U.K that he was playing “Amazing Grace” on his acoustic guitar, before he got shot by the kidnappers.
They revealed that they were all abducted from their accommodation in Delta State in the early hours of October 13.
The survivors, while revealing what transpired said: “It was the perfect song, and at that point things began to look not quite as bad. But then, after Ian finished playing, he stood up, and a salvo of gunshots killed him instantly.
“We didn’t see who did it, but it was obvious that someone in the gang had shot him. It was terrifying to see. We jumped out of the shack and into the water as we thought they were coming for us next, but a member of the gang came and put us back in there with Ian for the rest of the day.”
The abducted persons were freed from captivity after the demanded ransom was reportedly paid.
