20 Sep 2018

That the Parliament deplores the execution of Saifura Husseini Ahmed, a humanitarian worker and 25-year-old mother of two, by Boko Haram; understands that the terrorists are threatening to kill other hostages unless the Nigerian Government responds to its demands; agrees with the UN Humanitarian Coordinator in Nigeria, Edward Kallon, that the execution was “a cowardly, heinous and despicable act”; further agrees with the Nigerian presidency that “no religion permits the killing of the innocent”, and calls on the Nigerian Government, and any other groups that may be able to help, to continue their efforts to ensure the safe return of remaining hostages.
