TheCable had reported how Leman was killed on Monday.

"If we see them, we will kill the apostates among them, men or women, and chose to kill or keep the infidels as slaves, men or women". "That was the plea", she said.

Liman was abducted in Rann in March by the Boko Haram with another aid worker.

She however did not disclose the demands, saying the negotiation was between the Federal Government and Boko Haram.

"It is very unfortunate that it has come to this", Mr Mohammed said on Monday night when the news of the killing hit the airwaves.

He commiserated with the family of Hauwa Leman, noting that the federal government did all within its powers to facilitate her release and save her life.

Liman is the second aid worker to have been killed by Boko Haram recently.

"Hauwa was a nurse working to save lives of the vulnerable in the North-East".

We are in close contact with Hauwa's family, whose anxiety grows by each passing hour.
