UN Aid Workers: International community asked to rise against promoters of terrorism in Nigeria

The Save Humanity Advocacy Centre, SHAC, has reacted to the recent killing of United Nations, UN, aid workers by members of the Boko Haram sect in Borno State.

The ISWAP faction of Boko Haram on Friday shared a gory video recording that detailed the execution of four out of the five abductees that remained in their captivity.

The four slain aid workers who were abducted on July 18 were staff of the Action Against Hunger (AAH).

The murder of the four aid workers has brought the number of the abducted humanitarian workers slain by Boko Haram to five this year.

Reacting to the development, SHAC said it is high time that the world sanction France, other terrorists’ promoters for crimes against humanity.

Addressing newsmen on Monday, Ibrahim Abubakar, Executive Director of the group, called on the international community to speak with one voice against those promoting terror in Nigeria and other parts of Africa.

Abubakar also called on the Nigerian Military to scale up efforts to trace and free the fifth aid worker, Grace Taku, a female, whom the terrorists have reportedly consigned to a life of slavery.

Abubakar stated that Boko Haram and its Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP) iteration have recorded successive heavy losses from the Nigerian Armed Forces, adding that the reported escalation of French subversive activities in the region, including clandestine delivery of logistics to the terrorists, has given them the boldness to kill captives that they had held before France decided to strengthen their hands.
