Hope Rises For The Release Of Leah Sharibu With New Development

After its plenary on Wednesday, July 4, the house of commons of the United Kingdom (UK) assured the federal government of its supports in ensuring the safe release of Leah Sharibu, one of the Dapchi girls who were kidnapped by Boko Haram terrorists in February 2018.
The United Kingdom has vowed to the federal government that it will support it in its effort to actualise the safe recovery and return of Leah Sharibu, one of the Dapchi girls abducted by Boko Haram terrorists in February 2018. Sharibu, the only Christian, was held back for allegedly refusing to renounce her faith, The Cable reports.

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.”

247NNU gathered that the special assistant on media and communications to CAN president, Adebayo Oladeji, on Friday, May 18, in an exclusive interview, said CAN would not stop to agitate for the release of the schoolgirl, adding that her death could spell doom for the country as she was being detained because of her religious inclination.
