FG expresses shock over killing of aid workers by Boko Haram

Kauwa Liman and Alice Loksha

He commiserated with the family of the aid worker, and said the Federal Government did all within its powers to save her life.

According to the letter, she and two other colleagues, Alice and Saifura Hussaini Ahmed Khorsa were abducted in March.

Boko Haram uses kidnapping as a weapon of war, abducting thousands of women and girls and forcing young men and boys to fight in their ranks.

Hope that the Federal Government might secure the release of the kidnapped persons began to fade after The Guardian asked Segun Adeyemi, the special assistant on media to Minister of Information Lai Mohammed, for an update on government's efforts.

"It is actually bad news for all of us, for the family, for the humanitarian communities, for the health personnel and for all the women, daughters and mothers of Northern Nigeria and far beyond", she told the BBC. In all the negotiations, we acted in the best interest of the women and the country as a whole.

After killing Liman, ISWAP said Ngaddah, a Christian who works with UNICEF, will be kept as a slave, just like Leah Sharibu.

We are not sure of the exact time or hour when it expires, but are extremely anxious for lives of the Hauwa and Alice.

Justin Bieber supposedly feels guilty because Selena Gomez is in hospital
The world might be hungry for new Justin Bieber tracks, but the musician doesn't want to rush things. It also had it that Bieber has been struggling since his courthouse wedding to Baldwin last month.

Earlier this summer, the United Nations released a report alleging that the Nigerian government paid a ransom for the release of the schoolgirls, but not for Sharibu because she is not a Muslim.

In a video released in recent hours viewed by local reporters, the militants said Liman deserved to be killed because she had abandoned Islam by working for the ICRC.

"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.

Liman, 24, worked as a midwife at a government health-care center funded by the ICRC.

Nigerians meanwhile have been reacting to the sad news.

Terrorists from the Boko Haram terror group, which pledged allegiance to the Daesh* terror group, outlawed in Russian Federation, killed a kidnapped employee of an global humanitarian organization, Nigerian Minister of Information and Culture Alhaji Lai Mohammed said. I implore the Federal Government to deploy every reasonable tool at its disposal to bring Leah Shuaibu and all the children in Boko Haram captivity home.
