It is unclear what demands, if any, the extremists made for the release of the hostages.

According to a statement by Garba Shehu, the president's spokesman, in a telephone call, Mr Buhari commiserated with Hauwa's family and assured her father that the Nigerian government did everything possible to save his daughter's life, expressing sadness that all the efforts turned out unsuccessful.

The terror group executed another aid worker, Saifura Khorsa, last month.

The nation waited with bated breath as the deadline by ISWAP for the execution of Liman and Alice passed yesterday.

"If we see them, we will kill the apostates among them, men or women, and chose to kill or keep the infidels as slaves, men or women". "We are simply telling all humanitarian aid workers that if you go out and they capture you there is nothing that we can do", said Bukky Shonibare, a member of the Bring Back Our Girls movement.

A second aid worker, an ICRC midwife, was killed in September.

In a statement issued in London, Minister of Information and Culture Alhaji Lai Mohammed described the killing as "dastardly, inhuman and ungodly". "No news", he replied simply.

He appealed to the organisation to continue its services in the country, and not give up, despite the unfortunate and painful loss of their staff. He followed this nearly immediately with another text message: "Yes, call him (Mohammed) pls".

"We contacted the government through writing and also sent audio messages but the government has ignored us".

The executed aid worker, was forced to kneel down, with her hands tied inside a white hijab which has a crest symbol, and then shot at a close range.

"However, we will keep the negotiations open and continue to work to free the innocent women who remain in the custody of their abductors", Mohammed said. Still held captive is Alice Loksha, a nurse who worked at a centre supported by the United Nations children's agency.

An urgent plea to the largest ISIS-linked extremist group in Africa had come from the ICRC to spare Liman's life, Nigeria's government said late Monday.

She said: "The abduction of the three healthcare workers and the murder of Saifura will certainly have an impact on our capacity to deliver much needed aid to people affected by the armed conflict in the north east of Nigeria". So we always ask for unconditional release.

He also thanked all the friendly governments and the clerics across religious lines, that have continued to work with Nigeria for the safe release of the abducted women.
