General Overseer, Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adeboye on Friday joined calls for release of all captives, including Leah Sharibu after three years of captivity by Boko Haram insurgents.
On the eve of the second anniversary of the kidnapping of Dapchi schoolgirls by Boko Haram, President Muhammadu Buhari, has vowed for the umpteenth time to seek the release of Leah Sharibu and others in the captivity of the terrorists.
Much earlier in the days of her terrorist abduction, there was a spirited attempt by the Federal Government acting through third parties to pay a ransom in a bid to secure the release of Leah Sharibu, but her abductors who had made the financial demand backed out when payment was offered.
Senior Special Assistant to the President, Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, said the Buhari administration will not give up on the safe return of Leah Sharibu, the student of Government Girls Science and Technical Secondary School, Dapchi, who was kidnapped by a faction of Boko Haram terrorists in February 2018.
International Christian Concern, a platform campaigning for persecuted Christians worldwide, said US Vice President Mike Pence has offered to help Nigeria get Leah Sharibu and 110 Chibok schoolgirls in Boko Haram captivity.
The Federal Government on Sunday said social media report on the death of the abducted Dapchi school girl, Leah Sharibu, is fake and ploy by political opposition to tarnish the administration’s image ahead of the general elections.
The International Committee of the Red Cross has made a fresh appeal to Boko Haram to release the two remaining hostages being held by them: Alice Loksha, who was working for UNICEF and Leah Sharibu, the Dapchi schoolgirl kidnapped February 19.
