He said: "Beauty and Strength of Solitude: There come times when one has to be alone;

"In solitude for one to rest, sleep, pray, reflect and think through issues deferred; Away and far from the chaos and apparent anarchy that pervades our lives; With phones switched off, social media handles frozen and iPads packed away; Forgive me all, but I am going to be on break for a few days;

"In a place and space very far away from what my life has been these past few years."

In an interview with The Punch, the 83-year-old Abdullahi said he gambled with his life to save the Christians from the attackers. He added that as long as he lives, he would continue to save lives.
