So Boko Haram Finally Killed This Beautiful Lady?

How come life is becoming so brutish and worthless in Nigeria like this? If the federal government can't pay ransom for "ordinary" citizens, why not allow international bodies to take over the negotiations?

It appears the government is clearly incompetent and has failed to defeat Boko Haram in six months as they promised in 2015 before election.

The Federal Government has expressed shock and sadness over the killing of another aid worker by the Boko Haram despite all actions taken to avert the shedding of blood.

The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, described the killing as dastardly, inhuman and ungodly.

In a statement yesterday, he described the killing as dastardly, inhuman and ungodly, saying nothing can justify the shedding of the blood of innocent people.

He commiserated with the family of the aid worker, and said the Federal Government did all within its powers to save her life.

”It is very unfortunate that it has come to this. Before and after the deadline issued by her abductors, the Federal Government did everything any responsible government should do to save the aid worker.

”As we have been doing since these young women were abducted, we kept the line of negotiations open all through. In all the negotiations, we acted in the best interest of the women and the country as a whole.

”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.

He thanked all the friendly governments that have continued to work with Nigeria for the safe release of the abducted women, and the clerics across religious lines who have been pleading for their release.
