Red Cross Aid Worker Hauwa Liman Eventually Executed By Boko Haram


The Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP), a faction of Boko Haram, has reportedly executed 24-year-old nurse and student of Health Education at the University of Maiduguri, Hauwa Liman, also an aide worker with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC).

According to reports,  the insurgents have also vowed to keep Dapchi schoogirl Leah Sharibu as a their slave for life.

Liman was killed despite the last-minute passionate appeal by the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) "to the Nigerian Government and to communities and individuals with influence to work toward the release of the two committed medical workers abducted in north-eastern Nigeria earlier this year".

In a short statement, ISWAP said:

“We have kept our word exactly as we said, by killing another humanitarian worker, Hauwa Leman, who is working with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) that were abducted during a raid on a military facility in Rann, Kala Balge in March 2018.

“Saifura and Hauwa were killed because they are considered as Murtads (apostates) by the group because they were once Muslims that have abandoned their Islam, the moment they chose to work with the Red Cross, and for us, there is no difference between Red Cross and UNICEF.

“If we see them, we will kill the apostates among them, men or women, and chose to kill or keep the infidels as slaves, men or women.”


Recall that Hauwa Liman, was among the three aid workers abducted by the insurgents in an attack on a heavily-guarded military facility in the small town of Rann, Borno State on March 1, 2018. And asides Liman, the insurgents also abducted Alice Loksha Ngaddah, a nurse and mother of two, and Saifura Husseini Ahmed, a midwife, while also killing four soldiers and four policemen.

According to report, Ngaddah’s aged mother died unexpectedly in April as a result of the trauma of her daughter’s abduction, while Saifura was reportedly killed in September.

Following the execution of Liman, ISWAP disclosed that Ngaddah, a Christian who works with UNICEF, will be kept as a slave, just like Leah Sharibu.

“From today, Sharibu and Ngaddah are now our slaves," it said. “Based on our doctrines, it is now lawful for us to do whatever we want to do with them." it added.
