Is The FG Doing Enough To Free Leah Sharibu?

Is The FG Doing Enough To Free Leah Sharibu?

On the first day of the month, September 1, the National President of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), Rev Dr. Felix Omobude urged the Federal Government to expedite action in rescuing abducted Dapchi school girl, Leah Sharibu from the captivity of Boko Haram. He said, “The Federal government should act fast now by doing the needful and spare no efforts in securing the release of Leah, who had been held hostage for the past seven months. The PFN is considerably worried that it is taking the government such a long time to secure the release of Leah from the Boko Haram enclave. The PFN, therefore, calls on President Muhammadu Buhari to do the needful.”

It is noteworthy that the president failed to mention Leah Sharibu on Democracy day when he chose, instead, to celebrate the degradation of the sect, “Today, the capacity of the insurgents has been degraded leading to the re-establishment of authority of government and the release of captives including, happily, 106 Chibok and 104 Dapchi girls, and over 16,000 other persons held by the Boko Haram.”

It begs the question: is the federal government doing enough to free Leah Sharibu?
Failure to get an answer for seven months has inadvertently led to Leah’s mother slamming the federal government with a lawsuit of N500M for damages.

In the suit jointly filed with Daniel David Kadzai and a United States-based Lift-Up-Now Incorporation, a Non-Governmental Organisation, Leah’s mother demanded N500m as a compensation for the indignities and human deprivations suffered by Leah since her abduction in February 2018.

And despite this, Nigerians want to know only one thing: is the federal government doing enough to free Leah Sharibu?
