Daesh-linked Boko Haram terrorists in Nigeria have murdered yet another female aid worker, abducted earlier this year in the northeast of the country, a month after they killed one of her colleagues, officials said.
Nigeria’s Information Minister Lai Mohammed announced the latest killing after the expiration of a deadline, noting that the government was “shocked and saddened” by the terrorist act, describing it as “dastardly, inhuman and ungodly,” AFP reported on Tuesday.
It was not clear what the terrorists had requested in return for the potential release of the aid worker. Mohammed did not specifically explain.
Three female health workers were kidnapped by Boko Haram on March 1 during an assault on the remote town of Rann in Borno State that also killed three more aid workers and eight Nigerian troops.
