Boko Haram Kills Midwife Saifura Ahmed Abducted in Borno by katty : September 18, 2018, 10:18:29 AM
Saifura Ahmed, one of the three humanitarian workers abducted in Rann, Kala Balge local government area of Borno state, has been killed by the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP), a faction of Boko Haram.
 
The victim was abducted during a raid on a military facility in the area on March 1. At least four soldiers, policemen and three humanitarian workers were killed in the attack.

Following the murder of Ahmed, Leman and Alice Ngaddah, a mother of two, are the ones in captivity among the three people abducted in Rann on March 1. While the deceased worked with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), the survivors were staff of UNICEF. In a video seen by TheCable, the deceased was wearing a white hijab. She was shot 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.”
 
The ICRC has confirmed the identity of the victim, promising to issue a statement.
