Zulum writes to UN over murder of aid worker by Nigerian soldier


Babagana Zulum, the governor of Borno, has sent the UN a letter of sympathy (UN).

His memo came after an errant trooper killed a humanitarian aid worker and at least one soldier.

At a military base in Borno State’s Damboa Local Government Area, tragedy struck on Thursday.

The soldier was neutralized after going berserk, according to Major Samson Zhakom, an army spokesman for Operation Hadin Kai.

In response, Matthias Schmale, the UN humanitarian coordinator in Nigeria, demanded that aid workers receive sufficient protection.

The official charged the military and the government with strengthening corrective actions to avoid a repeat of the incident.

Zulum wrote in a letter to Schmale that the murder had shocked and saddened him greatly.

He sent his condolences to the Mrs. Alem Muluseta’s family, Medicine de Monde (DM) coworkers, and the aid industry.

Additionally, the governor offered consolation to the families of “the soldiers who lost their lives trying to restrain the perpetrator”.

According to Zulum, it was a case that had never been seen before and might not be unrelated to the offender’s mental state.

The injured pilot has received the necessary care and is making a good recovery, according to the Borno helmsman.

“Until he recovers, we’ll do everything we can to help him get what he needs.
