Group holds speak out saturday for Leah Sharibu today

On February 19, 2018, Leah Sharibu was kidnapped along with 112 Dapchi girls in Yobe state. Leah’s refusal to renounce her faith in Christianity gave the insurgent group a reason to keep her in captivity.

It is extremely sad to note that Leah has spent over 449 days in captivity with no proof that she is still alive. Meanwhile, President Buhari has assured Nigerians that Leah will not be abandoned, and he will do all he can to ensure that the Sharibu family rejoices with their daughter soon.

In a bid to ensure Sharibu is not forgotten, EiE Nigeria (Enough is Enough), in collaboration with the conveners of Bring Back Our Girls Campaign will have a special Speak Out Saturday today, with Femi Falana (SAN) as speaker.

In a statement issued by the organisers, they said, “We hereby use this medium to remind Mr President of his promise to aid the release of Leah Sharibu.

On Tuesday May 14, Leah Sharibu marked her 16 birthday in captivity, this is a painful milestone, but we will keep demanding for her release and other kidnapped victims.

“We ask the general public to join us as in keeping the momentum as we share our thoughts ideas towards soliciting for the timely release of Leah Sharibu, #ChibokGirls, Alice Ngaddah other abductees.”

EiE Nigeria and the Bring Back Our Girls movement have consistently educated citizens on peacefully and persistently demanding for our rights from public servants and elected officials.

“We remain hopeful that all abductees will be brought back alive,” the oganisers said.
