Aid worker killed in Nigeria after Islamists' deadline expires: government

The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) on Tuesday confirmed that an abducted health worker in Nigeria has been murdered by her captors.

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

Islamic State-linked extremists in Nigeria have killed the second of three abducted health workers, Nigeria's government said late Monday - the death coming a month after the first health worker was killed by the Islamic State West Africa Province.

He also spoke with the President of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), Mr Peter Maurer, and extended condolences on the loss of the aid worker.

Boko Haram, which has also been known as Islamic State in West Africa, has been waging a deadly campaign in north-eastern Nigeria for nearly a decade.

Information minister Lai Mohammed described the killing as dastardly, inhuman and ungodly.

News of the killing had not yet broken at the time.

Furthermore, the GTS introduces a new head-up display system to the Panamera range, featuring numerous configuration options. As all such features, this one will send to the interior of the windscreen relevant information, as requested by the driver.

While other students were released weeks after the abduction, Sharibu, the only Christian among them, was held back for refusing to convert Islam.

One of three women abducted, Saifura Ahmed, was killed killed in September.

"The Federal Government did everything any responsible government should do to save the aid worker", he said.

The terrorists, according to the report have said they'll keep Alice and Leah Sharibu, the Dapchi schoolgirl who wasn't released by the terrorist sect because she refused to renounce her faith, as slave.

While Leah was kidnapped on February 19, 2018 alongside dozens of her schoolmates in Dapchi, Yobe State, Liman and her colleague, Loksha, were seized in Rann, Borno State, on March 1, 2018.

We are not sure of the exact time or hour when it expires, but are extremely anxious for lives of the Hauwa and Alice. On Sunday, the agency issued a plea saying "we urge you for mercy" and noted that a 24-hour deadline was counting down.

"Boko Haram must also not be encouraged to see itself as being capable of unsettling the Nigerian state through evil acts like this as it will only motivate its fighters to abduct more helpless people". They were praised for volunteering to work in a risky area while many others fled or chose to remain in safer communities.
