Christian Group: Leah Sharibu Important Than Elections

Coalition of Christian Groups for Good-Governance (Nigeria and the Diaspora), has called on the Federal Government of Nigeria to focus on the release of Leah Sharibu rather than its re-election bid.

The Group lamented that several months after demanding her freedom and stoppage of the killing of Christians by President Donald Trump of the United States, the spate of violence had continued in Nigeria.

Leah remains in the captivity of Boko Haram after being kidnapped in February alongside others while in school in Dapchi. The terrorists held her back on account of her Christian faith.

The Coalition stated that, “The government has on many occasions promised to release Leah Sharibu but to no avail. How can you secure freedom for 104 in 30 days but will not secure freedom for just one child in eight months? Leah Sharibu and many more in captivity should be the first priority of the Nigerian government, not desperate campaigns going on.”
