Bring back Leah Sharibu before Boko Haram’s deadline expires, NCAN begs Buhari


Bring back Leah Sharibu before Boko Haram’s deadline expires, NCAN begs Buhari



The Chairman of the Northern Christian Association of
Nigeria, Rev. Yakubu Pam, has appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to
do everything within his powers to rescue Leah Sharibu before the
deadline that was given by the Boko Haram insurgents for negotiations
expires.




He also appealed to the insurgents to release Sharibu and other captives, stating that their families are in agony.




Speaking in an interview with journalists in Abuja on Friday, in
company with other NCAN members, Pam expressed the fear that the
abducted Dapchi schoolgirl might be executed as threatened by Boko
Haram.




“We have heard what the abductors have said, we are here together as
religious leaders and traditional rulers to appeal to the conscience of
the abductors of these innocent girls.




“We heard next week is the deadline to execute the girls but we don’t
know, but we are here to make an appeal to them and we pray that God
speaks to their heart so that they can release these innocent girls,”
Pam pleaded.




The NCAN expressed hope that the federal government would negotiate
with the insurgents for the release of all victims in Boko Haram
captivity.




“We are hoping that government will do everything in her powers to
release her(Sharibu) because she is still being held only on account of
her refusal to renounce her faith,” Pam added.




The Imam, Apo legislative quarters mosque, Sheik Mohammed Khalid,
wondered why Sharibu was being held on account of her faith, describing
the situation as unfortunate.




He said, “We are appealing to them to release those in their
captivity especially, Leah Sharibu, We are worried about her in
particular because she was abducted with other children, but why should
she be left behind, that’s our problem.”
