Patricia Danzi, the regional director of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) for Africa, during an interview on Tuesday, October 16, disclosed plans by the international humanitarian agency to leave turbulent areas in Nigeria.

Reuters reported that Patricia whose agency announced few days ago, that its aid worker, a 24-year-old Nigerian midwife Hauwa Mohammed Liman who was captured by Boko Haram in May has been killed by her abductors, said that though they were reluctant on paying Hauwa’s ransom, it appealed to the Islamic State in West Africa (ISWA), a faction of Boko Haram, to spare the life of the valiant aid worker.


According to International Committee of the Red Cross, Hauwa Liman was killed because they failed to pay her ransom, adding that paying such a ransom would set a regrettable precedent for other 16,000 of its aid workers across 80 countries in the world.
“When

health care workers are captured or abducted there is always a demand. We are a humanitarian organisation so we cannot enter into such kind of negotiations. So we always ask for an unconditional release. And that’s what we did. That was the plea.

We believe that there is no cause that can justify an execution of a young healthcare staff (worker). We are now in a period of mourning…Then we will have to rethink what we can do. And the (security) guarantees we can get. Because we want to give humanity a chance, we want to be there for the people that still need our help.”


Hauwa Liman who was kidnapped alongside two Nigerian aid workers, Alice Loksha and Saifura Hussaini Ahmed Khorsa, in March while working at Rann, was killed a months after Saifura was shot dead.
