Sadness, pain as Boko Haram executes Hauwa Leman


Commentators say sect is plainly evil

By Nsikan Ikpe


Sadness and pain are some of the emotions being displayed across Nigeria and the rest of the world following the release of news that Hauwa Leman, a second abducted aid worker, has been executed by the Islamist insurgency, Boko Haram.


Her death is coming despite assurances by Nigeria’s Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed  that Hauwa, her International Committee of the Red Cross, ICRC colleague, Alice and the Christian student abducted from her school in Dapchi, Yobe State, Leah Sharibu would not be executed.


Responding to news of the execution some commentators expressed their view that the iSLAMIST sect was plainly evil with other perplexed respondents calling out the Buhari administration for censure:

How do you come into Govt as a former Military General with a promise to end Boko Haram, fail to do that, fail to rescue all Chibok girls, lose more from Dapchi, recover some by paying ransom which enable BH to grow faster, leave Leah Sharibu behind and lose aid volunteers??’


In his own response, the social commentator, Okofu Ubaka remarked that: ‘To say this outlaw is brutish is an understatement!’

President Muhammadu Buhari had come into office three and half years ago on expectations and promises to rout the decade-old insurgency that has collosally affected North Eastern Nigeria and parts of Niger, Chad and Cameroon.


Sadly however, the group has remained a most pernicious and fairly solid thorn yet in the flesh for the affected nations.
