Boko Haram killed aid worker

Boko Haram jihadists have killed another kidnapped aid worker in northeast Nigeria, the government said, the news came a month after one of her colleagues was murdered.

Information minister Lai Mohammed did not identify the victim but described her 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, during the same raid three other aid workers and eight Nigerian soldiers were killed.
