Terrorists executed another aid worker in Nigeria this week. However, they now say a Christian teen they threatened to kill will instead live as a slave. 

On September 18, members of the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP), a faction of Boko Haram, executed an aid worker. In a video they released of the execution ISWAP threatened that other prisoners would be executed in October, including Leah Sharibu.

Sharibu was among 110 girls abducted by Boko Haram from a school in Dapchi (northern Nigeria) February 15, 2018. She was the only Christian in the group, and the only girl to remain in captivity after she refused to renounce her faith.

Now, however, Boko Haram has said that she will not be killed.

According to Nigerian paper The Cable, the group said in the statement that Alice Ngaddah, a Christian who works with UNICEF, will also be kept as a slave.

“From today”, ISWAP said, Sharibu, 15, and Ngaddah, a mother of two, “are now our slaves.

“Based on our doctrines, it is now lawful for us to do whatever we want to do with them,” the group further said.
