B’Haram: Reps seek urgent release of last aide worker, Leah

FG We did everything responsible to save Hauwa Leman

There had been no news of the trio until in September when the ICRC said it had received footage of Khorsa's killing from the IS-backed Boko Haram faction Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP).

The terror group, also holding a Dapchi girl, Leah Sharibu, said last month that Liman and Loksha would be killed within a period of time that is due on Monday.

The Nigerian government insisted it did all it could to save the aid workers and others being held.

The Boko Haram terrorists on Monday executed the second International Committee of the Red Cross, ICRC, aid worker, Hauwa Leman. "Sadly, another life has been lost to an irresponsible and insensitive government", he tweeted.

She worked with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and was abducted during a raid on a military facility in Rann, Borno State in March 2018, along with Saifura and one other colleague.

In a statement issued in London on Monday, the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, described Monday's killing as "dastardly, inhuman and ungodly", saying nothing can justify the shedding of the blood of innocent people.

"As we have been doing since these young women were abducted, we kept the line of negotiations opens all through".

Nigeria has expressed outrage at the killing of another aid worker by the Boko Haram group, after failed efforts to assuage the jihadists.

He also thanked all the friendly governments and the clerics across religious lines, that have continued to work with Nigeria for the safe release of the abducted women.

"We are concerned that many people in the region will not have access to medical support if the region becomes too unsafe for staff to operate", Aleksandra Mosimann, a spokeswoman for the ICRC, told the New York Times.

More than 27 000 people have been killed in northeast Nigeria since the Boko Haram insurgency began in 2009, while almost two million others remain homeless.

"From today", ISWAP said, "Sharibu, 15, and Ngaddah, a mother of two, are now our slaves".

Analysts tracking the conflict believe the switch from attacking "hard" government and military targets to killing hostages is the result of a hardline takeover of the IS-backed faction.

The mass abduction of more than 200 schoolgirls from Chibok, Borno state, in April 2014 brought global attention to the insurgency and was widely condemned.
