Christians Protest Freedom For Leah Sharibu.

Christians Protest Freedom For Leah Sharibu.

Christians in hundreds in Kaduna State raised their voices against the

Government’s alleged helplessness in rescuing a lone Chibok schoolgirl, Leah

Sharibu, still in Boko Haram’s den since 2018.

This is coming after Leah and over 100 female schoolmates at the

Government Girls’ Science and Technical College, Dapchi, in Yobe State, were

forcefully taken captive by the dreaded Boko Haram insurgents over 10 years

ago, and while some were released, Leah who refused to denounce her

Christian faith remained in captivity.

At a point, she was said to be married to more than two commanders of the

sect which had over the year’s unleashed terror on Borno, Yobe, Adamawa,

and some parts of the northern states. She bore three kids for the

commanders, and some Christians under the aegis of the Christian Solidarity

Worldwide Nigeria in a peaceful protest demanded the immediate release of

Leah and other schoolchildren still languishing in terrorist camps across the north

The Christian leaders stormed the ECWA Good News Church, along Narayi

High Cost, Chikun Local Government Area of the state, where the peaceful

protest was held and collectively called on both the Federal and State

Governments to secure the community so that Leah Sharibu and others

could go to school without necessarily ending up at kidnappers’ dens.

They carried placards while chanting solidarity songs as they laid siege to the

church, while, the Chief Executive Officer of the Christian Solidarity

Worldwide Nigeria, Reverend Yunusa Nmadu, spoke shortly after the protest,

and described it as unfortunate that 10 years after the incident, Sharibu had yet to be rescued.
