Boko Haram frees 5 abducted aid workers, still holding Leah


Boko Haram terrorists have freed five aid workers abducted on December 22 after an undisclosed sum was allegedly paid by the federal government.

The gunmen abducted the workers after they ambushed the aid workers vehicle along Monguno and Damaturu.

The State Security Service (SSS) reportedly, facilitated the release of the aid workers said to be two females and three males.

The five freed workers were said to have arrived at the DSS office in Maiduguri at about 4 pm today, January 15.

A source was quoted as saying;

“It is a big day for us here in Borno with the release of the five abductees.

“Two of the abductees were staff of ALIMA, an international NGO; one from Solidarity International, one from International Organization on Migration and one from Red Cross.”

Meanwhile, there is still no news about the fate of the celebrated captive of the terrorists, Leah Sharibu.

While an abducted aid worker disclosed in a video  that she had been killed by the terrorists, the federal government in a rebuttal said Leah was still alive and that the government was doing everything to secure her release.
