Tribute to missionary Ian Squire murdered in Nigeria

By PA Reporter

A British charity worker killed after being held hostage with a Northern Ireland woman in Nigeria was "constantly pushing the boundaries of generosity", his family said.

Ian Squire, fellow Christian charity workers David and Shirley Donovan and Co Antrim woman Alanna Carson were working as medical missionaries when they were abducted on October 13.

In a statement, Mr Squire's family said: "We are all deeply saddened by the loss of Ian, a loving father, husband, and devout Christian, who dedicated much of his life in the service of others. It's clear that Ian had touched many hearts with his kindness and grace.

"The extent of his impact is only made more apparent by the overwhelming response from the community in the wake of his death.

"He was a man constantly pushing the boundaries of generosity with his charity work, the scope of which knew no borders, taking him all the way to developing countries that needed it the most."
