The Federal Government did everything possible to save Hauwa’s life; it is tragic & regrettable that all our efforts were unsuccessful,” the President wrote on his official Twitter handle.

“Hauwa dedicated herself to serving the victims of Boko Haram’s insurgency, and it is extremely sad that her life ended the way it did, at the hands of the terrorists. I expressed our deepest condolences to her father, on behalf of the Government and all the people of Nigeria.

“I also spoke with @PMaurerICRC, the President of the ICRC, to extend our condolences on the death of Hauwa. The ICRC has been doing a great job in Nigeria, providing healthcare services to people in the areas most affected by the insurgency. We salute their courage and service.”

He expressed hope that the tragedy would not stop the ICRC’s work in north-eastern Nigeria, and promised that his administration would continue doing everything to safe-guard he lives of everyone working and living in the region.

“We fervently hope that these series of sad events, leading to the painful loss of their staff, will not discourage the ICRC from working in Nigeria. We hope that they will continue to offer their services, and not give up, in spite of what has happened,” Buhari said.

“I am reassuring everyone that the Fed Government will continue to do all within our power to protect not just humanitarian workers, but also everyone working or living in the North East. I salute our military, who continue to fight and strive hard to permanently neutralize Boko Haram.”

Breaking News:Boko Haram Killed One Hauwa Liman

The killing of healthcare worker Hauwa Liman by the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP), a faction of Boko Haram (even though it hates to be identified as one), on Monday was devastating news to Nigerians and the international aid community.

The 24-year-old nurse and student of Health Education at the University of Maiduguri was among the three aid workers abducted by the insurgents in an attack on a heavily-guarded military facility in the small town of Rann, Borno State on March 1, 2018.

Aside Liman, the insurgents also abducted Alice Loksha Ngaddah, a nurse and mother of two, and Saifura Husseini Ahmed, a midwife. They killed four soldiers and four policemen as well.

Ngaddah’s aged mother died unexpectedly in April as a result of the trauma of her daughter’s abduction, while Saifura was killed in September.

In publishing the story, some blogs and newspapers — SaharaReporters not included — went online to source the photo of the slain aid worker, but they got the wrong one.

No one would have thought there were two not-too-dissimilar Hauwa Limans, but that’s exactly what has happened. And the Hauwa Liman, who is alive and whose picture has been wrongly used, is very displeased.
