Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP), a faction of Boko Haram, has executed Hauwa Leman, an aide worker with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), TheCable has been informed.

The terrorists also promised to keep Leah Sharibu, the Dapchi schoolgirl, as “a slave for life”, TheCable has also exclusively gathered.

In a letter released earlier, the Red Cross pleaded with the Nigerian government to help to ensure the remaining aid workers are released.


With the death of Hauwa Leman, Saifura Hussaini Ahmed Khorsa who was executed in September this year, only one aid worker, Alice and Leah Sharibu, the kidnapped Dapchi girl.


The letter reads in part, “Hauwa and Alice are medical workers who chose to work and help vulnerable communities in Rann, an area heavily affected by violence”

“The town’s population has more than doubled because of the conflict, while most local health-care staff have fled. These women were providing essential and life-saving services to thousands of people, displaced and resident alike. All they sought to do was to help,” Mamadou Sow, the head of ICRC’s Operations in the Lake Chad Basin wrote.

More so, in a Tweet, Maurer wrote,

This is Hauwa. She’s 24 years old. A midwife working with us in northern Nigeria.


In March, she was kidnapped. Tomorrow, she could be executed.


Hauwa is a daughter, a sister, a friend. A young woman with a future ahead of her.


We are pleading for her life to be spared.
