”It is very unfortunate that it has come to this. Before and after the deadline issued by her abductors, the federal government did everything any responsible government should do to save the aid worker.

This was the reaction of the Federal Government on Monday to the killing of Hauwa Liman, a staff of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), who was abducted recently and eventually killed on Monday by the dreaded terrorist organisation, Boko Haram, rampaging parts of the North East.

The government conveying its position through a statement issued in London on Monday, by Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, described the killing as “dastardly, inhuman and ungodly,” saying nothing could justify the shedding of the blood of innocent people.

He commiserated with the family of the aid worker, and said the federal government did all within its powers to save her life.

”As we have been doing since these young women were abducted, we kept the line of negotiations open all through. In all the negotiations, we acted in the best interest of the women and the country as a whole.

”We are deeply pained by this killing, just like we were by the recent killing of the first aid worker. However, we will keep the negotiations open and continue to work to free the innocent women who remain in the custody of their abductors,” the minister said.

He thanked all the friendly governments that have continued to work with Nigeria for the safe release of the abducted women, and the clerics across religious lines who have been pleading for their release.

The Boko Haram insurgency has caused about 100,000 deaths since 2009, according to the Borno State Government.

Despite the efforts of security forces, the insurgents still carry out attacks on civilian and military targets in Adamawa, Borno and Yobe states. --Premium Times
