Niamey – The cross, symbol of the parish of Fr. Pierluigi Maccalli, the missionary of the Society of African Missions kidnapped in September 2018 has been completely eliminated. “According to the testimonies gathered, the iron cross was fixed in 1995, the year of the creation of the parish. This is the same place where Fr. Pierluigi Maccalli was kidnapped in September 2018. Taking him away was also taking away the cross from the territory of Bomoanga, lost in the border savannah, in the middle of nowhere”, says to Agenzia Fides Fr. Mauro Armanino, Fr. Macalli’s confrere.
