Where is Leah Sharibu, asks CitizensGO

It has been some weeks now since the last batch of release was done by the Boko Haram terrorist group which saw the release of some 100 girls with a caveat to parents, “Don’t ever put your daughters in school again.”

ITRealms reports that following Leah Sharibbu refusal to denounce her faith despite persuasion by the rest of her abducted school friends, Boko Haram thus refused to release her whilst her mates regained freedom.

ITRealms recalled that the terrorist, Boko Haram early in the year, entered Dapchi, Nigeria, around 2 a.m. in nine vehicles and the girls were left in the center of town, witnesses said. The Boko Haram extremists reportedly told residents they “did it out of pity. And don’t ever put your daughters in school again.”

Since then, nothing has been heard of Leah Sharibu despite Federal Government promises, hence, Ann Kioko and CitizenGO team are joining forces with Ladies World Foundation (LWF), an organisation in Nigeria to pray for Leah Sharibu and all girls abducted by the Boko Haram terrorists.

However, in furtherance, the teams at CitizenGO and Ladies World Foundation have opened up petition to seek help for Leah and the rest of abducted girls, and beckoning concerned citizens of the world to signup.

Pointing out that out of the abducted girls, school girl Leah Sharibbu refused to denounce her faith despite persuasion by the rest of her abducted school friends.

“The only Christian girl among the Dapchi schoolgirls kidnapped by Boko Haram last month could have been freed along with her schoolmates but refused to renounce her faith, according to her mother. Leah Sharibu refused to accept Islam, resisting the entreaties of her classmates to pretend to do so, her parents learned from snatched conversation with her friends,” part of the petition read.

In addition, Ms Leah asked her friends to tell her parents to pray for her, they said, but her mother could not find out anything else about how her daughter was!

Early penultimate Wednesday morning, Rebecca Sharibu, the mother of Leah, 15, heard girls’ voices and the sound of vehicles driving past her house. She was told to stay inside, but when she heard the cars coming back after dropping the girls off, she ran out. All around her were joyful parents and their returned daughters. But she could not find Leah anywhere.

According to the petition, Boko Haram horrified the world when it abducted 276 girls from a boarding school in Chibok more than four years ago. While some escaped and many others were released as part of negotiations, about 100 still remain with their captors. Some girls were forced to marry their captors, and many had children fathered by the militants.
The Ladies World Foundation Nigeria and the CitizenGO team urging good people all over to join hands to us pray for Leah Sharibu and all the remaining abducted girls by the insurgent group.

“Also help us hold the Nigerian accountable for not helping finish off or control the Boko Haran insurgent group,” the group demanded.


Boko Haram, they lamented, has been a religious extremist insurgent group that abducts innocent girls and forces them to renounce their faith besides marrying them off and making them sex and work slaves.
