The Nigerian Police and the British High Commission have identified the female foreign tourist killed, along with a Nigerian by suspected kidnappers in Kajuru, Kaduna state. She is Faye Mooney.

Faye Mooney, a British national, worked with Mercy Corps Nigeria in Lagos.

According to the police, Faye Mooney and the Nigerian were killed by suspected kidnappers at Kajuru Castle in Kajuru Local Governor Area of Kaduna State, at about 11:30 am on Friday when the attackers stormed the area shooting sporadically.

The Daily Mail quoted Mooney’s boss Neal Keny-Guyer, Chief Executive Officer of Mercy Corps as saying that Mercy Corps staff are ‘heartbroken’ at the loss of the ‘dedicated’ Faye Mooney.

‘Faye Mooney was dedicated and passionate communication and learning specialist who had worked with Mercy Corps for almost two years, devoting her time to making a difference in Nigeria, supporting our teams and the communities we work with to tell their stories of impact, and leading efforts to counter hate speech and violence.

‘A graduate of University College London and the London School of Economics who had taught in Iraq and worked in Kosovo to combat human trafficking, Faye Mooney was deeply committed to fostering cross-cultural collaboration and was an inspiration to us all.’
