The Islamic terrorist group Boko Haram has executed a second humanitarian worker and vowed that Christian schoolgirl Leah Sharibu will be a slave for life.
The Islamic State West Africa Province, as the group is officially called, a testament to its ties to the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, sent a video to Nigerian website The Cable on Monday, reportedly showing the execution of Hauwa Leman, an aid worker with the International Committee of the Red Cross.
The publication describes the murder: “Leman was forced to kneel down, with her hands tied inside a white hijab which has a crest symbol, and then shot at close range.”
Leman is the second Red Cross hostage killed by the terrorists, following the execution of Saifura Ahmed back in September.
The video declares that Sharibu, the 15-year-old Christian schoolgirl who was kidnapped in February and continues to be held because she refuses to convert to Islam, is still alive, but will be a “slave for life.” Another Christian woman, Alice Ngaddah, who works with UNICEF and was also captured by Boko Haram, will meet the same fate, the radicals added.
“Based on our doctrines, it is now lawful for us to do whatever we want to do with them,” the group said of what it plans for the two Christians.
Nigeria’s Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, said that the latest killing is “dastardly, inhuman and ungodly,” and that “nothing can justify the shedding of the blood of innocent people.”
Mohammed insisted that the Nigerian government is keeping lines of communication open with the abductors, as reported by CNN.
