Boko Haram faction kills second aid worker in Nigeria

Medical worker Hauwa Mohammed Liman who was held hostage by Islamic State in Nigeria since March

Islamic State-allied Boko Haram jihadists have killed another kidnapped female aid worker in north-east Nigeria, the government said, a month after one of her colleagues was murdered. We reiterate our call that; #BookHaram must immediately release remaining health workers, Leah Sharibu and all other civilians held hostage.

The ICRC workers had been in the north east of Nigeria in the town of Rann where a military outpost had given some protection to the 80,000 refugees refugees displaced by the 9-year-old conflict and violence of the Islamist insurgency. "This situation is heartbreaking and our thoughts remain with the family".

"Saifura and Hauwa were killed because they are considered as Murtads (apostates) by the group because they were once Muslims that have abandoned their Islam, the moment they chose to work with the Red Cross, and for us, there is no difference between Red Cross and UNICEF", the group added. "#Nigeria @MBuhari @ProfOsinbajo @AUC_MoussaFaki", Amnesty posted on Monday evening. Before and after the deadline issued by her abductors, the Federal Government did everything any responsible government should do to save the aid worker.

Reacting, Duke in a post on his Twitter page described the death of Hauwa as an indictment on Buhari's government over its inability to secure lives of Nigerians. Please, pray for me; please go and tell my parents that I am in trouble. "They are #NotATarget", Mr Saraki said. A midwife working with us in northern Nigeria.

He wrote: "The execution of Hauwa Liman by Boko Haram is an indictment on our government's inability to ensure the safety and security of it's citizens".

For the senator respresenting Kaduna Central, Shehu Sani, Ms Liman "was a martyr of peace". She was a martyr of peace. "She epitomized courage, resilience & sacrifice.She was a light that shined over the dark corners of our country.May Allah grant her peace", Sani tweeted.
