SWITZERLAND, DECEMBER 13 – The Islamic State in West African Province(ISWAP), an offshoot of Boko Haram has reportedly executed four men and doomed a woman to a life of slavery. The men and the woman work in Borno for an aid agency, Action Against Hunger.
The incident was reported by journalist and terrorism expert, Ahmed Salkidda, who is known for his knowledge of Boko Haram related issues.
“ISWAP executes four more, releases video. All four are male humanitarian workers of Action Against Hunger abducted since July, 2019. The only female amongst them, Grace Taku, according to ISWAP, is condemned to life of slavery,” Salkidda tweeted on Friday.
According to Salkidda, ISWAP claims the execution was as a result of breakdown of talks with the government. “The government is not sincere and do not respect timelines,” reports an ISWAP source.
Taku’s fate is now the same with other Christian female captives with the terror group.
