LEAH SHARIBU’S FAMILY CALLS FOR HER FREEDOM AHEAD OF HER ABDUCTION ANNIVERSARY
The Family of the abducted Dapchi schoolgirl, Leah Sharibu has called on the Federal Government to help secure her freedom from the captivity of Boko Haram terrorists as the one year anniversary of her anniversary draws close.
Mother of Sharibu, who addressed a press conference yesterday in Abuja, broke down as she spoke in Hausa.
She appealed to President Buhari to make good on his promise to free her daughter from the captivity of Boko Haram.
Another member of the family, Gloria Puldu, explained that the press briefing was called to remind Nigerians and the entire world that their daughter has not been released by her abductors.
“In less than eight days now, she will be spending one year in captivity if she is not released before then.
“Leah is in captivity because she refused to renounce her faith. Please, Leah should be set free, Leah should not be allowed to be killed in captivity,” she added.
Meanwhile, Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed has said reports of Leah’s death in captivity is absolutely false.
He said this while addressing reporters on Sunday in Kwara State saying, “It’s absolutely fake news. There is nothing like that.”
The minister, however, alleged that the report was an alleged plot by the political opposition to tarnish the image of the Muhammadu Buhari administration ahead of the general elections.
