    Default British woman killed by gunmen at Nigerian holiday resort

    British woman killed by gunmen at Nigerian holiday resort

    22nd April 2019


    Faye Mooney had been working in Nigeria for a non-governmental organisation

    A British woman was one of two people shot dead by gunmen who stormed a holiday resort in Nigeria.

    The woman was named by her employers as Faye Mooney from Manchester.

    A Mercy Corps statement said the 29-year-old had been working for them in Nigeria, but was on holiday when she was "tragically killed" in the northern city of Kaduna.

    Ms Mooney's family said they were "so proud of who she was", adding: "Her memory will always be cherished."

    "Faye was an inspiration to her family, friends, students and work colleagues," the family said. "Her bravery and her belief in a better society took her to places others feared."

    Local police said a Nigerian man was also killed, and three others were kidnapped during the attack on Friday.

    Kidnapping for ransom is common in Nigeria, with foreigners and high-profile Nigerians frequently targeted.

    Ms Mooney was employed in Nigeria as a communication specialist for the non-governmental organisation Mercy Corps, which said it was "utterly heartbroken".



    Neal Keny-Guyer, Mercy Corps chief executive, said she had worked with the company for almost two years "leading efforts to counter hate speech and violence" in Nigeria.

    He said the graduate of University College London and the London School of Economics, who had previously worked in Iraq and Kosovo, was "an inspiration to us all".

    Police said there had been no claim of responsibility for the incident and the kidnappers were yet to be identified.

    A spokesperson said a group armed with dangerous weapons had gained entry to Kajuru Castle and began shooting sporadically, killing two people and kidnapping three others.

    Apparently the country does have holiday resorts... but you couldn't pay me to go there.

    I'd quite open to travelling to most places one day, but I'd never visit any SSA nation. Anyway, RIP. Poor woman.

    Yes they do, but not like you see in other countries relative to more higher end facilities and safety. Kaduna is up North in the middle of nowhere and a resort like that has zero security. Aid workers in the back water areas their lives are always at risk, although she was not targeted. Even in N. Africa was that Morocco where a terrorist killed like 40 Europeans at a beach resort.....no police response for a significant time.

    Obviously people without fear and the belief in a better society, biggots. However it doesnt stop bullets yet.

    "Faye was an inspiration to her family, friends, students and work colleagues," the family said. "Her bravery and her belief in a better society took her to places others feared."



    This is tragic and comical comment at the same time. Bit like the preaches in ancient times after catastrophic events, so people could convince themselves they still had faith.
