The Cable reported that the house of commons (lower chamber of the UK parliament) came to a consensus on Sharibu at its plenary on Wednesday, July 4. A member of parliament (MP) for Carshalton and Wallington, Tom Brake, asked the secretary of state for foreign and commonwealth affairs for updates on his department’s discussions with Nigerian authorities on the long abduction of Sharibu.
Harriett Baldwin, minister of state for Africa at the foreign and commonwealth office, responding to the summon, said the foreign secretary spoke to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and extended an offer of support from the UK government. Baldwin said: “Attacks on schools and abductions of children are abhorrent and must stop. The government of Nigeria has said they are making all efforts to secure her release.
“The UK is resolute in its support for Nigeria in the fight against Boko Haram, and are providing a substantial package of intelligence, military and humanitarian support to assist in the response to the ongoing conflict.”
