We Mourn ICRC Midwife, Saifura Ahmed Who Was Abducted and Murdered By Boko Haram


Saifura Ahmed, a 25 year old midwife and a mother of two has been killed by the Islamic State West Africa Province, a faction of Boko Haram.

Saifura, who worked with the International Committee of the Red Cross moved to Rann to help vulnerable women in need when she was abducted alongside two of her colleagues during a raid on a military facility in March 2018, just after the Dapchi girls’ abduction.

During the attack, Hauwa Leman, one of the workers abducted, had sent an audio to one of her friends, demanding that her parents be informed that she had been kidnapped.

Saifura was reportedly asked to kneel and shot from behind. The terrorists have also threatened to kill the other health workers as well as Leah Sharibu as they claimed to have contacted the government over the captives but did not get any response.

“We contacted the government through writing and also sent audio messages but the government have ignored us. So, here is a message of blood,” said a spokesman of the group who did not give his name. The other nurse and midwife will be executed in similar manner in one month, including Leah Sharibu,” TheCable reported

    God forbid! The others will leave alive. God will make a way out, where/ when the Government can’t.
    The blood of Saifura will keep crying out for the others, including Teenager Leah Sharibu.
    RIP Saifura. What a noble course you embarked on!!! You will always be remembered for good. May the Lord comfort your family.
