Presidency reacts to video by abducted aid worker claiming Leah Sharibu is dead

The statement by Garba Shehu, the Spokesperson to President Muhammadu Buhari, read;

The Presidency has been briefed by the responsible government agency about the disturbing video showing our citizens, the humanitarian aid workers held captive.

Presidency has been given assurances that contact is being made and the captors are being talked to.

Beside these aid workers, there are some others about whom this engagement is about-Leah Sharibu, a religious leader and all the others.

These discussions have been ongoing even before this time and what this latest incident has done is to bring urgency to the efforts that the secret service is making.

Government is making contacts, in the hope that the captors will see reason to not visit hardship or even harm on these innocent individuals.

International charity organisation Action Against Hunger has said that six of its workers kidnapped in Nigeria last week have appeared in a 3-minutes video. The six workers, comprising one staff member, plus drivers and health workers employed locally, they revealed.

The hostages are believed to be held in the enclave of Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP) on the shores of Lake Chad.

No group has claimed responsibility for the abduction, although, Boko Haram and ISWAP are the two main groups active in Nigeria’s northeast sub-region, where the abduction happened.
