Boko Haram kills another female aid worker in Nigeria

ISIS-allied Boko Haram terrorists have killed another kidnapped female aid worker in northeast Nigeria, the government said on Monday, a month after one of her colleagues was murdered.

AhlulBayt News Agency (ABNA): ISIS-allied Boko Haram terrorists have killed another kidnapped female aid worker in northeast Nigeria, the government said on Monday, a month after one of her colleagues was murdered.

Information minister Lai Mohammed did not identify the victim but described the killing as "dastardly, inhuman and ungodly", and vowed to push for the release of two remaining female captives - an aid worker and a 15-year-old girl - held since earlier this year.

Three female health workers were kidnapped during a Boko Haram raid on the remote town of Rann, in Borno state, on March 1 that killed three other aid workers and eight Nigerian soldiers.

Two of the kidnapped women, Hauwa Liman and Saifura Khorsa, worked for the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), while the third, Alice Loksha, worked for the UN children's agency, Unicef.

There had been no news of the trio until last month when the ICRC said it had received footage of Khorsa's killing from the IS-backed Boko Haram faction ISIS West Africa Province (ISWAP).
