Boko Haram Kills Abducted Health Worker, Threatens Leah Sharibu

Boko Haram jihadists have killed Saifura Ahmed, one of the three humanitarian workers abducted in Rann, Kala Balge local government area of Borno state.

The victim was abducted during a raid on a military facility in the area on March 1 that left no fewer than four soldiers, policemen and three humanitarian workers dead.

Following the murder of Ahmed, Hauwa Leman and Alice Ngaddah, a mother of two, are the ones in captivity among the three people abducted in Rann.

TheCable reports that in a video of the execution, the deceased was wearing a white hijab when the terrorists shot her from behind

The insurgents claimed that they had contacted government over the captives but did not get any response.

“We contacted the government through writing and also sent audio messages but the government have ignored us. So, here is a message of blood,” said a spokesman of the group who did not give his name.

“The other nurse and midwife will be executed in similar manner in one month, including Leah Sharibu.”

This comes a month after Leah Sharibu, in an audio released by the insurgents in August, called on the Federal Government to secure her release.

Sharibu is the only Christian among the abducted 119 students of Government Girls Secondary School, Dapchi, Yobe state, kidnapped in February.
