Five humanitarian workers who were recently abducted along Monguno area of Borno state have been assassinated by Boko Haram terrorists.
POLITICS NIGERIA reports that the terrorist group made this known in a video which was released on Wednesday.
The insurgents had earlier demanded about $500,000 dollars ransom before the abducted workers can be released. But the abducted humanitarian workers were all executed when the ransom was not met by management of the Borno State Emergency Management Agency, Action Against Hunger, Rich International and International Rescue Committee.
Meanwhile, the insurgents left a message in the video before executing the workers. The message reads: “We are sending this as a very strong message to you unbelievers and infidels. And to those of you that are being used by these infidels to repent.
“You are working for them but they do not have any concern about you.
“You worked for them to achieve their goals but they are very far from your plight. They do not show you any care. Look at you now. When we kidnap you they don’t care. They show no concern.
“We are calling on all you unbelievers to repent and turn to Allah.
“We will continue to abduct you people at every road that we see you if you don’t repent to work for them. It is a warning to all of you.”
