FG Did Everything Possible To Save Hauwa Killed Red Cross Worker

The Nigerian Government has said it was shocked and saddened at the killing of another aid worker, Hauwa Mohammed Liman by Boko Haram on Monday, despite the actions taken by the government and the widespread appeal to save the young woman.

In a statement issued in London on Monday, the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, described the killing as dastardly, inhuman and ungodly, saying nothing can justify the shedding of the blood of innocent people.

”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.
