In the video, the insurgents said the humanitarian workers were “working for unbelievers who don’t care about you.”
Their message read: “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 on every road that we see you if you don’t repent to work for them. It is a warning to all of you.”

“President Buhari sympathizes with the families of the five aid workers while praying that God will comfort them for their irreplaceable loss.
“He assures them that his government will continue to do all it can to ensure that every remaining vestige of Boko Haram is wiped out completely from northeastern Nigeria and that the perpetrators of this atrocity face the law.
