BBOG Group Protests Killing of Aid Worker, Demands Release Of Others In Boko Haram Captivity
The Bring Back Our Girls (BBOG) campaign group is currently protesting the murder of a second Aid Worker by the terrorist group, Boko haram on Monday.
24 year old Hauwa Liman a volunteer with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) was murdered by a faction of Boko haram known as the Islamic State of Wet Africa on Monday, October 15.
The BBOG group through a statement by its spokesperson Nifemi Onifade said it was deeply saddened by the news of Hauwa’s death, despite several appeals from different quarters to the government to help secure the release of the aid workers as well as others all those in captivity of the terrorist organisation.
The statement read;
“It is with deep sadness that we receive the regrettable news of Hauwa Liman, today on the 15th of October, 2018. Hauwa was a humanitarian aid worker, working with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) at the time of her abduction with her colleagues, Saifura Ahmed and Alice Ngadahh – whom we now collectively refer to as the #RannWomen.
The news we have received suggests that she was killed in a similar manner as Saifura was, about a month ago, following a threat by the terrorists to do so.
We had been monitoring the situation since their abduction 228 days ago. We have since made numerous demands to the government, asking for actions that will ensure their safe return during a number of marches and as contained in our letter to the President earlier today.”
The BBOG group further said it is embarking on the latest protest to impress more demands on the Federal Government to ensure that the remaining captives which include Leah Sharibu, the remaining Dapchi school girl in captivity, Alice Ngaddah, the remaining aid worker with UNICEF and 112 Chibok girls are released safely.
The statement continued;
“For Alice Ngaddah, Leah Sharibu, our 112 #ChibokGirls and others in captivity, it is not too late. We will go ahead with a planned protest to the Presidency tomorrow to carry our increased demand to the Federal Government, led by President Muhammadu Buhari.
We ask that members of the public join us (tomorrow October 16) as we set off from the Unity Fountain at 9:00 am. We also ask for prayers for Hauwa’s family, her colleagues and others in captivity,” the statement concluded.
