UNICEF, in a statement by Marie-Pierre Poirier, UNICEF Regional Director for West and Central Africa, also expressed shock on the attack against humanitarian workers in Rann.

Joanne Liu, president of Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF), speaks during a news conference in Brussels, Belgium September 7, 2017.

In Rann village, Borno State, four aid workers were killed on the United Nations said on Friday, in the latest violence to hit the remote town.

GENEVA/NEW YORK, MARCH 2, 2018-Following a violent attack yesterday near Rann, in Nigeria's Borno state, Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) suspended its medical activities in the town and evacuated 22 Nigerian and worldwide staff. More than 20,000 people have been killed and two million forced to leave their homes since 2009.

"Humanitarian workers are not targets".

He asked the Nigerian Government to ensure the killers are arrested but also added that the United Nations has temporarily suspended humanitarian aids to Rann.

"Aid workers put their lives on the line every single day to provide emergency assistance to vulnerable women, children and men".

The attack was a further setback for President Muhammadu Buhari, who took office in May 2015 vowing to improve security and who has repeatedly asserted that the Boko Haram insurgency has been defeated.

Jurgen Klopp explains benefits to his Liverpool rotation policy
Adam Lallana is waiting in the wings, though, so Can can't afford to take his foot off the gas. Liverpool are now third in the league with 57 points, just 2 points behind Manchester United .

"Our deepest condolences go to the families of the victims and our courageous colleagues and we call on authorities to ensure the perpetrators are brought to justice and account", Kallon said in the statement.

A former governor of Kaduna State and ex-chairman of the National Caretaker Committee, NCC, of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Ahmed Makarfi has lamented the terrorist attack in Rann by suspected Boko Haram extremists.

In the same vein, the European Union (EU) also condemned the attack. It said it was also concerned other civilians may have been killed or injured. Four soldiers and four mobile police also died, and another three humanitarian workers were injured.

"The two others who were killed were working for the International Organisation for Migration (IOM)".

A female nurse attached to the IDPs camp was feared abducted by the insurgents.

"We are outraged and saddened at the killings of two of our colleagues in the attack". In December, four people were killed when a World Food Program convoy was ambushed in Borno.

These actions detract from the credibility of the Nigerian authorities, who considered that the end of the Boko Haram is close; whose insurgency has killed thousands of people in the last seven years.
