President of the Senate, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, has condemned the killing of Red Cross worker, Hauwa Leman by Boko Haram.
In posts on his social media handles, Saraki blasted the action as ‘callous and ungodly.’
“I join Nigerians and the international community in condemning the murder of Hauwa Leman- an aid worker with the Red Cross, by Boko Haram.
“As I said on the 18th of September 2018, humanitarian workers, who go into troubled spots to alleviate people’s suffering are the most courageous and selfless people on the planet. They are #NotATarget.
“To harm aid workers in any way is a most callous and ungodly act. We need to do better with our national security operations in order to prevent the endangering of lives of humanitarian workers and ordinary citizens in crisis areas.
“My colleagues and I in the Nigerian Senate remain committed to continue working with our Armed Forces to find a lasting solution to these senseless killings by insurgents and improving our national security infrastructure.”
Saraki’s condemnation comes after the Federal Government condemned the action, faulting the insurgents for carrying out their threat despite the open channel of communication that had been maintained.
