The men were working for Action Against Hunger, the International Rescue Committee, Rich International and the country’s State Emergency Management Agency, Nigeria’s president confirmed.

Muhammadu Buhari blamed Boko Haram and vowed to bring the killers to justice. He also pledged to “wipe out the remaining vestiges” of the Islamist group, which has dominated the region.

Trump Threatens To Expand Federal Crackdown

President Donald Trump has threatened to send more federal law enforcement officers to major US cities to control ongoing protests.

Mr Trump on Monday criticised a number of cities run by “liberal Democrats”, including Chicago and New York, saying their leaders were afraid to act. He said officers sent to Oregon had done a “fantastic job” restoring order amid days of protests in Portland.

Democrats accuse Mr Trump of trying to rally his Conservative base. President Trump, a Republican, has been trailing in opinion polls behind his Democratic rival, Joe Biden, ahead of November’s election.

Last month, Mr Trump declared himself the “president of law and order” in the wake of widespread protests over the death in police custody of African-American man George Floyd.
