Boko Haram Executes Five Aid Workers in Borno
Boko Haram terrorists on Wednesday released a video showing the assassination of five humanitarian workers who were recently abducted along Monguno area of Borno state.
The insurgents had earlier demanded for about $500,000 dollars ransom before the abducted workers can be released.
In the video released on Wednesday, the abducted humanitarian workers were all executed.
The insurgents left a message in the video before executing the workers.
The message reads: “We are sending this as a very strong message to you unbelievers and infidels. And to those of you that are being used by these infidels to repent.
“You are working for them but they do not have any concern about you.
“You worked for them to achieve their goals but they are very far from your plight. They do not show you any care. Look at you now. When we kidnap you they don’t care. They show no concern.
“We are calling on all you unbelievers to repent and turn to Allah.
“We will continue to abduct you people at every road that we see you if you don’t repent to work for them. It is a warning to all of you.”
SIGNAL could not ascertain the identities of the executed aid workers at the time of this report.
The Nigerian government is yet to comment on the development.
More to come…
