Amidst the levels of insecurity facing the country for over a decade, the International Committee of the Red Cross has clarified that its role in Nigeria does not involve taking part in the negotiation process among the Federal Government, military and insurgents, neither does it take any side of the party, maintaining that its mandate is to bring succour to civilians in conflict.

In a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Yusuph Olaniyonu, in Abuja, Saraki stated that the killing of aid workers represents a new low by Boko Haram insurgents, while calling for immediate action by the military to ensure that Leah Sharibu and the other two Red Cross workers still in Boko Haram’s captivity are released.
