The US embassy has condemned the execution of Hauwa Leman, a health worker with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC).
The embassy, in a statement on Tuesday, expressed its condolence to the family of Leman and the ICRC.
“We stand in solidarity with our Nigerian partners as we work to defeat ISIS-West Africa and prevent these tragedies,” the US embassy said in the statement.
“Our thoughts and prayers go out to Hauwa’s family, to her colleagues, and to those still suffering in captivity.”
Leman’s execution is coming a month after Saifura Ahmed, one of her colleagues, was murdered by Boko Haram insurgents.
The federal government and other prominent Nigerians have condemned the incident.
Lai Mohammed, minister of information, said the government did everything a responsible government should do to save Leman and Ahmed.
