UN decries killing of abducted aid worker in Borno


The United Nations Humanitarian Coordinator in Nigeria, Mr. Edward Kallon, has condemned the killing of abducted 25-year-old midwife and aid worker, Saifura Hussaini Ahmed Khorsa, in Borno State.

She was captured on March 1, 2018 in Rann town where she was working with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC).

The Head of Communication of OCHA, Samantha Newport, in a statement yesterday in Maiduguri, said the incident followed a deadly attack by a non-state armed group in which three other aid workers were equally killed.

According to her, two female charity volunteers were also kidnapped during the invasion.
