Just In: Boko Haram Kills Aid Worker In Borno Ambush




Boko Haram

Suspected Boko Haram insurgents have killed a worker of Action Against Hunger, a humanitarian Organisation, in Damasak, Borno State.

A statement by the Action Against Hunger disclosed that its members were attacked by terrorists while heading to Damasak.

The organisation disclosed that two drivers and three health workers are still missing after the attack by Boko Haram.

The statement reads in part: “One of the drivers was killed, while one Action Against Hunger staff member, two of the drivers and three health workers are missing.

“We are deeply saddened by this tragic incident as these are colleagues dedicated to providing life-saving assistance to individuals and families affected by the ongoing humanitarian crisis in the northeast of Nigeria.

“We are very concerned and want to ensure that they are safe and can be reunited with their families.

“Action Against Hunger strives to ensure that millions of people in need of humanitarian assistance in northeast Nigeria receive the essential services required for their survival, especially women and children.”

Naija News recalls that the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP), a faction of Boko Haram, had last year October, executed Hauwa Leman, an aid worker with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC).
