The UK is appalled by the reported execution of Reverend Lawan Andimi by Boko Haram. The Minister for Africa tweeted his condolences on 21 January and echoed President Buhari's condemnation of this senseless killing. While we have not made representations to the Government of Nigeria about this specific incident, we regularly engage the Government on tackling the terrorist threat in North East Nigeria. Most recently, the Prime Minister raised his concerns about increasing levels of violence in North East Nigeria with President Buhari at the UK-Africa Investment Summit on 20 January. To help communities in the North East, the UK is providing £300 million of humanitarian support over 5 years (2018 -2022).
