Attack on humanitarian workers godless, despicable - President Buhari

The statement condemned the "attack by a Non-State Armed Group" on military facilities near Rann town, noting that a female nurse is feared abducted and that other civilians might have been killed or injured.

Three U.N. workers - two from the IOM and one from UNICEF - died, as well as four soldiers and four mobile police.

"One of these courageous workers who lost their lives, and the nurse who is missing, were on the frontline providing critical services supported by UNICEF".

In January 2017, a botched Nigerian airstrike meant to hit jihadist fighters killed at least 112 people as aid workers distributed food. All those involved were Nigerian, she added.

The camp for displaced people in Rann was bombed in an accidental Nigerian Air Force strike previous year, killing up to 170 people.

The attack is a further setback for President Muhammadu Buhari, who took office in May 2015 vowing to improve security and who has repeatedly said the Boko Haram insurgency has been defeated.

She said that two of the deceased were contractors of the United Nations client organisation, International Organisation of Migration (IOM) deployed to Rann as camp managers.

Meanwhile, competent sources in Rann told NAN that the insurgents attacked the town at about 7pm on Thursday.

As I have always maintained, no true religion advocates hurting the innocent. Condemns Killing Of Aid Workers In Borno appeared first on Channels Television.

Buhari sympathised with the United Nations and other humanitarian agencies working at Rann, and in the country generally. In December, four people were killed when a World Food Programme (WFP) convoy was ambushed in Borno state.

Atiku expressed sadness over the gruesome incident that led to death of the aid workers.

"Our security forces must not relent until they bring the perpetrators of this atrocity to justice", Saraki wrote on social media.
