  • Politics Boko Haram 'Returning To Dapchi With Leah Sharibu' - TheCable

The leadership of the Congress of Northern Nigeria Christians in Kaduna on Monday urged President Muhammadu Buhari to do all within his power to rescue Miss Leah Sharibu, the only Christian girl yet to be released by Boko Haram after the Dapchi schoolgirls' abduction.

"It is very understandable that in such circumstance, one does not create too much security presence in the area in a manner that it could sabotage the efforts being made there. CNNC strongly condemns this evil tendency and urges Mr. President to, as a matter of urgency, intervene and ensure the immediate release of this young girl".

Residents of the Nigerian town of Dapchi were hoping Sunday for the release of the last schoolgirl, who is also a Christian, from among a group of more than 100 kidnapped and released by Islamists, following encouraging indications from authorities. "So far, a total of 107 persons, comprising 105 Dapchi schoolgirls and the two non-students, have been released by the insurgents", he said.

The group released 104 girls on Wednesday and reportedly held Leah back for refusing to convert to Islam.
