The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Candidate, Atiku Abubakar has condemned the brutal murder of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) aids worker, Hauwa Leman, by the branch of Boko Haram.
Leman was murdered after the expiration of the deadline given by Islamic West Africa Province (ISWAP) to the Federal Government to free her and her colleague, Saifura Khorsa, who was earlier killed.
Abubakar in a statement issued by his Presidential Campaign Organisation on Tuesday in Abuja said that the inhuman act was a crime against humanity.
Abubakar assured the parents of Hauwa Leman and Saifura Khorsa, and all Nigerians, that he would do everything within his powers to ensure that justice was served to those who committed the “heinous act.”
“While nothing can bring her back, the Atiku Abubakar Presidential Campaign Organisation wishes to ensure the family of the innocents, whose lives have been brutally cut short, that we will continue to work with our partners in Nigeria and the international community to ensure that those who are still in the captivity of the terrorists and their allies are rescued alive.”
Abubakar called on all Nigerians to continue to support the gallant men and women of the armed forces, as they take the battle to the terrorists and their sponsors.
“Nigeria will prevail because the victory of good over evil is a settled issue. May God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”
He prayed God to grant the family fortitude and succour in these trying times.
“We also pray for God to be with our security forces and grant them every advantage over the enemies of our nation.”
