Bulama Bukarti, a Kano-based lawyer, has revealed that Abdur-Rahman Bulama, one of the five aid workers executed by Boko Haram insurgents on Wednesday, was abducted three days to his wedding.
Bulama and the other four aid workers, were kidnapped in Monguno, on their way to Maiduguri, the Borno State capital on July 1.
The jihadi group released a video showing the execution of the workers, after their employers failed to raise the $500, 000 ransome.
Sharing the information on social media, Burati wrote:
“Abdur-Rahman Bulama was one of the aid workers abducted by ISWAP and executed yesterday. He was abducted just three days to his wedding. The people being killed everyday in Nigeria aren’t just numbers. Each was a human being with dreams and valued their life like you and I do.”
