In a statement sent to Per Second News, the United States Embassy in Abuja called it ‘senseless murder’ .
” We utterly condemn this heinous and inhuman act and stand in solidarity with the ICRC and all those who work in service with the Nigerian people.”
“Midwife Saifura Hussaini Ahmed Khorsa was providing care to those most vulnerable. This was a senseless murder. Our thoughts and prayers go out to her family, and to her colleagues, and to those still suffering in captivity.”
Khorsa was working in the UNICEF clinic in Rann with internally displaced people in a remote town outside Maiduguri, in Nigeria’s troubled north east region.
