  • 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.

"I have visited the schools to assess our deployment to the schools; I am here now to visit the military and I spoke to all my officers in the three commands, to encourage them to have a greater synergy with the military and other security agencies".

"We were told she was on her way but she has not yet been brought", said Kachalla, who is the spokesman of the abducted schoolgirls' parents union.

The Nigerian Air Force has airlifted the released Dapchi girls from Abuja back to Maiduguri where they will be taken back Dapchi.

Leah Sheribu was among 110 students abducted from Dapchi Government Secondary School in Yobe State on February 19.

Unfortunately, five of the girls were said to have died while in captivity.

"We are all waiting to receive them even as we pray God should bring them home safely".

The girl's father, Nathan Sharibu, confirmed to The Associated Press that he heard she was on her way to Dapchi.

"The IGP could not also proceed to Dapchi because of same weather condition", he stated.

While some of the Chibok girls have been freed in exchange for ransom and the release of top Boko Haram commanders, a total of 112 remain in captivity.
