The Federal Government has reacted to Why Boko Haram refused to release Leah Sharibu.
– Lai Mohammed discloses what the government is doing to rescue the Dapchi schoolgirl from Boko Haram captivity
Federal Government said they deliberately refused to release Leah Sharibu in order to divide Nigerians along the lines of religion.
Leah Sharibu was among 110 female students of the GSS School, Dapchi in Yobe state abducted by Boko Haram in 2018.
Her case, in particular, attracted unprecedented local and global attention, owing to the fact that others were released, while she was detained for reportedly refusing to renounce her Christian faith.
However, Lai Mohammed told Channels TV that the terrorists know that holding Sharibu captive might cause religious tensions in the country.
He assured Nigerians that the FG is making efforts through back channels to secure the release of the Dapchi schoolgirl.
He urged Nigerians not to play into the hands of the terrorists by looking at security matters.
”We must please be careful and more responsible in the way we look at issues. This is exactly what the terrorists want to do, set Muslims against Christians.”
Meanwhile, Enoch Adejare Adeboye, founder and the general overseer of the Redeem Christians Church of God (RCCG), has called for the release of Leah Sharibu.
Efforts are ongoing to rescue them.
