we’re working with govt to secure aid worker’s release


Plateau State Governor Simon Lalong says his administration is working with the Federal Government and security agencies to secure the release of aid worker Miss Jennifer Samuel.

The victim hails from Plateau State.

Lalong, in a statement by Information and Communication Commissioner Mr. Dan Manjang, said the state government would not rest until Miss Samuel and her colleagues were released.

He said Miss Samuel, who works with Alliance for International Medical Action, a humanitarian organisation in the Northeast, was allegedly abducted in Borno State by suspected Boko Haram insurgents.

“The Rescue Administration is interested in the welfare of Plateau State citizens anywhere in the world.

“Channels of communication have been opened with relevant authorities to secure the release of not only Miss Samuel, but also other citizens in the captivity of terrorists,” the governor said.
