Christian leaders in the North under the auspices of Northern States Christian Elders Forum (NOSCEF), have pleaded with President Muhammadu Buhari to present the missing Dapchi schoolgirl, Leah Sharibu to the Christian community as their Christmas gift.
In a Christmas message made available to newsmen in Kaduna on Sunday, NOSCEF’s Chairman, Mr. Ejoga Inalegwu, said the release of the Sharibu would be the most cherished Christmas gift for Christians in Nigeria.
According to NOSCEF, “We plead with the President, Muhammadu Buhari, to give the Christian community of this great nation, the Christmas gift by ensuring the release of our dear child Leah Sharibu from the brutal custody of the Boko Haram.
“We believe the government has the wherewithal and competency to effect her release” Ejoga said.
Bittertruth Media recalls that Leah Sharibu was among the 110 students of the Government Girls Science and Technical College, Dapchi, Yobe state, who were abducted by Boko Haram terrorists on February 19, 2018. However, while others were released, Miss Sharibu was held till date for refusing to renounce her Christian faith.
The President has made several promises, but none has led to the eventual release of Miss Sharibu over a year after her abduction.
